Titus 2:14 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

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.


One year ago today, I was released from prison, but I was free long before they opened those gates! I had found, or rather, Christ had found me and set me free from the true prison and true chains that were on my heart!! There is so much freedom found in surrendering to Christ. It’s no longer a fight to survive, but rather a joy to live in Him!!!


In one year, God has restored me to my family, has given me amazing brothers and sisters in Christ, has blessed me with a job serving Him and men who were lost like me, and has continued to pour His love, mercy, kindness, conviction, hope, peace, and strength into me! I say these things not to brag about me but to brag about how great God is! None of these things in me or my life are from me, but rather from my Father in Heaven, who delights in saving and blessing His children.


I can’t begin to describe the true joy I feel each day, knowing that I have a personal relationship with the Creator of the Universe because of His Son’s precious sacrifice and the Holy Spirit that lives in me! If you give God a chain, He will break it. If you give Him a heart, He will heal it. If you give Him a chance, He will give you an eternity!!! I have a lot of regrets in my life, but choosing Christ will never be one of them! If you’re tired, if you’re lonely, if you’re hurting, if you’re lost, look no further than the Cross, for true healing is found there! Let the love of the Lord saturate your life and watch Him bring beauty from ashes!!!


Be encouraged, Be loved and Be loving, Be real with God and let Him be real in you! Most importantly, surrender your life to Jesus and Be more like Him!


I love you all. God bless, Glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!
