Letter of St. Paul to Titus 2: 11 – 14

2:11 For the grace of God our Savior has appeared to all men,
2:12 instructing us to reject impiety and worldly desires, so that we may live soberly and justly and piously in this age,
2:13 looking forward to the blessed hope and the advent of the glory of the great God and of our Savior Jesus Christ.
2:14 He gave himself for our sake, so that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and might cleanse for himself an acceptable people, pursuers of good works.
