I’m having a full day today. After taking my cousin-in-law to the airport, yours truly will be preaching on Titus 2:11-15, A God-Centered Salvation, over at QCEC.
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 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. Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.
My central point will be: “The grace of God, showcased in our salvation in Christ, not only justifies us but causes us to godly living, while waiting for our blessed hope.” At least, that’s the central point in my head. I will be expounding it more later during the sermon.
The afternoon will be spent at home, resting, and then my beloved M and I will be ending the day having dinner with some of our godparents.
A full day indeed.
Update, 21:23 PM
My beloved M and I just came home from dinner with our ninong and ninang (godparents, for those who don’t speak Tagalogue). Dinner was at a place called Carol’s Texan 5. I had the burger steak, M had the roast beef, while our godparents shared a ribs dish. For appetizers, we had fiery chicken wings (seen at the top edge of the picture below).
Our ninong, who’s American, at first wondered who Carol was (we didn’t know), and then commented that the ribs weren’t Texan at all. At least not done in the old-fashioned Texan barbecue way. Overall though, the food was good, and we had a great time chatting and enjoying God’s bounty.
