For God has revealed his grace for the salvation of all people.
That grace instructs us to give up ungodly living and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this world,
as we wait for the blessed Day we hope for, when the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ will appear.
He gave himself for us, to rescue us from all wickedness and to make us a pure people who belong to him alone and are eager to do good. 1
