Please read Titus 2:1-15.
A verse had been on my mind much of the night, but could not think of the reference. Then as I sat down for devotions this morning; my Psalm for the day was Psalm 145, then came the verse that had been on my heart, verse 8, “The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.” Verse 9, “The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.”
I. GOD’S GRACE FIRST OF ALL PRODUCES SALVATION TO ALL WHO BELIEVE VERSE 11.
“For the grace of God.”The favour of God, shown to the undeserving, as in Romans 1:7.
“That bringeth salvation.”or “to all men, hath appeared.”That is, “the grace which brings salvation to all men has been revealed.”
It means that the plan of salvation has been revealed to all classes of men; that is, it is announced or revealed to the entire race that they may be saved. Or it means that plan was fitted to secure the salvation of all men; and that none were excluded from the offer; that provision had been made for all, and all might come and be saved. Whichever interpretation is adopted; the sense here will not be essentially varied. It is, that the gospel was made to order for man, and therefore might include servants as well as masters; subjects, as well as kings; the poor, as well as the rich; the ignorant, as well as the learned.
So, why bring the poor, the bus kids, etc. Because of God’s amazing grace and it is for everybody.
