Titus 2:14
". . .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." NIV
". . .who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." KJV
How would we respond to someone who pulled us from a burning vehicle seconds before it blew up, engulfed in flames? Would we simply and nonchalantly thank this person and go on our way? Would we offer money in payment for this heroic deed? Or would we be so grateful to this person that we would be eager, zealous to show our gratitude in some meaningful way? Jesus Christ not only saved us from eternal death, but He sacrificed His own life for ours. How much more zealous should we be in serving Him and doing the works He did when He was here on earth?
Heavenly Father, forgive us for becoming complacent in our Christian walk. Get us to the place where our hearts are stirred and the fires of our faith are reaching for the heavens. Let our works be zealous and reflect the gratitude we have for the sacrifice Christ made for us at the cross. In His name we pray, Amen.
