For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our 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 lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
The big trees towered over us on the trail. I stopped a minute and stood in awe at their amazing strength and beauty. In their height, their trunk, and branches you can see their many years, their history. They have made it through many seasons. But in each one is also the promise of new growth waiting for the next season. We look back over our lives and see the way Jesus has stepped into each season. We see him today as we try to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives. And now we wait for our blessed hope, of when we will see our precious Jesus.
We wait for your coming today as we walk with you. We wait for that time when you will come again in your glory. As we wait help us to live lives that are self-controlled, upright, and godly.
