Creation to Creator declaration

Titus 2:11-15 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, (12) training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, (13) waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, (14) 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. (15) Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.

 

Saved from – ungodliness and worldly passions = rescued from creation oriented life

Training to renounce = clarified loyalty

Godly lives in this present age = being loyal to Creator over creation in spite of the seeming rule of Creation

Blessed hope = the invisible Creator is no longer invisible; he appears

Why? To complete the redemption (buying from obligation to dying creation and rebellion) so that we belong to the Creator and are useful, diligent.

That is what to declare fearlessly.

  • = – = – =

The problem is Creation in rebellion to Creator vs redeemed people trained in effective loyalty to the Creator even while waiting for his final restoration of God/Man/Creation where eager productivity/service will be done.
