For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. - Titus 2:11-14
I want to think and do the right things for the right reasons. You have given me a new lease on life. But even though I long to do better, I notice that worldly passions are right there with me to tempt me to indulge instead of serve. My downfall happens in my heart long before it is seen in my life. But deep in my heart I appreciate your grace and mercy so much that I will not give up this fight to be eager to do what is good for you. Thank you for being patient with me.
