Titus 2:13-14 (KJB) Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
God gave Jesus Christ, His Only Son, to redeem our lost soul and to reunite us with God forever. This timeless spiritual union includes cleansing from sin. A regenerated heart of a child of God is consecrated or sanctified so that they can produce spiritual fruit and stand peculiar in this world among the prolific presence of evil and darkness.
You see the gospel means nothing to lost souls unless they can see it successfully working and changing hearts in this world. Just speaking about God is like telling a story which carries little or no significance with lost souls. God made it possible for His genuine children to stand united in heart with Him and work as billboards for His message of grace and mercy for this lost and dark world. His message is etched in hearts and painted on the horizon of all creation in this world.
Jesus Christ gave of Himself so that any person who desires in the heart can be spiritually quickened alive. He died so that man can elect to have eternal hope and live with Him forever.
God gave His Only Son so that we could have hope for tomorrow and live in sweet eternal fellowship with Him forever.
