Titus 2:11-14
11 For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. 12 And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with self-control, right conduct, and devotion to God, 13 while we look forward to that wonderful event when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. 14 He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing what is right.
Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

The power to live as Christ did comes from the Holy Spirit.  Because Christ died and rescued us from sin, we are free from sin’s control.  God gives us the power and the understanding to live according to His will and to actively live His Word.  We do all of this while we look forward to the Day when Christ will return for His Church and then comes to set up His earthly rule.  It is not enough to renounce sin and evil desires, but we must also live actively for God.  It is our belief in action.  It is too easy to say that we believe God, it is more difficult to live our faith with our actions.  But our actions, the way we behave and things that we do, speak louder than what we say.  Talk is cheap, but actions are gold. Active service for Christ means serving His body.  When we serve His body we are showing our love for Him.  It is God who gives us the desire to do this and then will give us the power as we act in faith.  Live in this evil world with self-control, right conduct, and devotion to God and you can not go wrong.  You will be actively living your faith.

Have a God Day!
