Devo of the week: Titus 2:11-14

“The grace of God…teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in the present age.” Some Christians excuse their sin and lack of self-control by appealing to a future perfecting when we get to heaven.  God’s word is clear here that self-controlled living begins here and now as we develop and practice it.  What do I need to learn to say “No” to as a follower of Jesus?  Forgive our “yeses” to worldly passions and teach us through Your grace to say, “No” instead. Amen.
