Epistle Reflection

Our hearts and minds must be made completely new;
we must get rid of that old self, which made us live as we did;
we must put on the new self, created in God's likeness,
revealed in the true life which is upright and holy.

New Testament Reading - Teaching for the church


11 For the free gift of eternal salvation is now being offered to everyone; 12 and along with this gift comes the realization that God wants us to turn from Godless living and sinful pleasures and to live good, God-fearing lives day after day, 13 looking forward to that wonderful time we've been expecting, when his glory shall be seen - the glory of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ. 14 He died under God's judgment against our sins, so that he could rescue us from constant falling into sin and make us his very own people, with cleansed hearts and real enthusiasm for doing kind things for others. 15 You must teach these things and encourage your people to do them, correcting them when necessary as one who has every right to do so. Don't let anyone think that what you say is not important.

. . . Titus 2:11-15

In the heavenly kingdom,
the blessèd have their dwelling place;
and their rest for ever and ever.

Let the sorrowful sighing of the prisoners come before you;
