11 For the grace
of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.
12 It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and
to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,
13 while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing of our great
God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify
for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
