THE GRACE THAT SAVES WILL PUT YOU TO WORK

THE GRACE THAT SAVES WILL PUT YOU TO WORK

Titus 2:13-15 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

The true grace of God (1 Peter 5:10) actually teaches us to be zealous of good works Titus 2:14, be prepared (Titus 3:1), maintain good works (Titus 3:8). It is because of Divine blessing that human works are done. In fact grace flowing in your life will make a worker out of you, even work more than most according to 1 Corinthians 15:10. “… I labor more abundantly than you all…. yet not I but the grace of God which was with me. The word labor is from the root of the Greek word “kopiao” which means to work hard, to feel fatigue, to toil, to labor, to be wearied. It says he did this more abundantly, in a more abundant way, a great deal more, far more.

Works won’t save you, that’s only by grace, but the grace that saves will make you work. Paul addressed the false idea in the book of Titus of “works having nothing to do with the life of the Christian now that he is under grace.
