Zealous of Good Works

faithworksTitus 2:13-14 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

I notice two things in this passage:

  1. We’re to be a peculiar people. When the world looks at us, there should be a difference – in spirit, in charity, in demeanor, in “conversation”. If we continually seek the things of the world, and there is no difference, why would the world want what we have, when we show that we really want what they have?
  2. We’re to be zealous of good works. Earlier in the chapter, Paul says to show forth a “pattern of good works”. Our greatest Example, Jesus Christ, “went about doing good”. Might our lives be characterized by a zeal to do good works, for the Lord and in service to Him, and unto others.

As we see here – He’s coming, and His coming is imminent. When He comes, let Him find us “so doing”.
