"For the grace of God has
appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny
ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously
and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the
appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus,
who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and
to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for
good deeds" (Titus 2:11-14).
