* Saved by grace – “He saved us, but not because of anything we had done to gain His approval. Instead, because of his mercy He saved us” (Titus 3:5).
* Saved for good works – “God’s saving kindness … trains us to avoid ungodly lives filled with worldly desires so that we can live self-controlled, moral, and godly lives in this present world” (Titus 2:11-12).
* Saved to be a witness – We are to “show the beauty of the teachings about God our Savior in everything we do” (Titus 2:10). Witness is more than what we say. It’s what we do. Our whole life – words as well as actions – is to point people away from ourselves to our Saviour.
