“For that salvation has appeared does not automatically mean all have received it. The place of receiving brings you to earning it. For them that received Jesus they will earn being sons of God”
I write this to make you see the danger of not receiving the grace of God. God’s grace is pure and God loves all men, so He had made His grace first of all to appear to all men and receiving it is left to them.
Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath APPEARED to all men,
We see clearly here that the grace of God which comes with salvation has appeared to all men. All men here means all men. All men on the face of the earth. One thing grace brings is salvation. But what you need to do is to receive that grace and it does not come alone, it comes with salvation package in it.
- Why must I receive grace?
You must because you’re not free from the hold of sin and death by which all men have being made sin through Adam!
Romans 5:12 When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. ADAM’S SIN BROUGHT DEATH, SO DEATH SPREAD TO EVERYONE, FOR EVERYONE SINNED.
You see that? You’re not free until you receive that salvation which grace brings. Now see this on a final note
Romans 5:17 For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, FOR ALL WHO RECEIVE IT WILL LIVE IN TRIUMPH OVER SIN AND DEATH THROUGH THIS ONE MAN, JESUS CHRIST.
You can’t live in triumph over that sin and death unless you receive salvation that grace brings and salvation is in no other name but the name of Jesus!
