The Moral Power of the Grace of God (3 of 3)
Johnny Hunt
Titus 2:13-14

INTRODUCTION: The highest and purest motivation for Christian behavior is not based on what we can do for God but rather upon what God has done for us, and yet will do. The teachers on Crete assumed that their religious works earned them God's favor. But Paul was there to teach them that only as we begin to grasp the significance of God's grace can we eagerly do what is pleasing to Him. Paul also reminded believers that they are waiting with hope and that as they attempt, through God's grace to do what is good, Jesus Christ will ultimately bring forth his rule of righteousness at His appearing.

The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is the Climax of Redemption and the Culmination of History. The return of Jesus Christ is central in God's Word. We speak much about grace and rightly believe that we are saved by grace through faith. Grace is mentioned 125 times in the New Testament. We speak about repentance and how repentance is necessary if a man is to see God. Repentance is mentioned 70 times in the New Testament. In the New Testament alone, the truth of the appearing of Jesus Christ a second time is mentioned more than 380 times.

The fact that Jesus was born, lived, and died is history. The fact that He will come again is prophecy.
