TITUS 2:14

“…who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.”

In these words we have two truths — what Christ has done to make us His own, and what He expects of us. In the former we have a rich and beautiful summary of Christ’s work for us: He gave Himself for us, He redeemed us from all iniquity, He cleansed us for Himself, He took us for a people, for His own possession. And all with the one object, that we should be a people zealous of good works.
