Paul challenged Titus with these words in Titus 2:11-14 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the Great God and our Savior 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. ANTICIPATION FUELS MOTIVATION!!! You might be thinking, “Pastor, I am hopeless!” ARE YOU WITHOUT CHRIST? AS A BELIEVER, ARE YOU PRAYERLESS? Our HOPE as Christians, is renewed through PRAYER. PRAYER is a purposeful, mindful and heartfelt pursuit of God and His Kingdom. PRAYER is evidence, that our faith is alive and bent upon seeing Jesus face to face! LOOKING FORWARD BY FAITH PRODUCES HOPE!
