I am working on Titus 2:13 right now. (Keep holding me accountable.)
Memorizing helps me to see insights I have missed even with intensive reading. For example, Titus 2:11 says this:
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.
So simple and so easy to glide over. But I saw three important points:
- Grace comes from God. He's the source of grace.
- That grace brings salvation. I love the action word: "brings." I get an image of a waiter bringing the entree to the table. It comes to us; we are served.
- That salvation has appeared to all men. It's not reserved for Pharisees or church elders. It has appeared to all.
