2 Timothy 1:9-10

He is the one who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not based on our works but on his own purpose and grace, granted to us in Christ Jesus before time began,  but now made visible through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus. He has broken the power of death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel!

He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,  but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,  but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,

For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.  And now he has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He broke the power of death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News.

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,  But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:


There is a message of hope that invites all to come to Christ. All are invited, and there is no checklist you have to meet to accept Jesus’ invitation. Yet you won’t find yourself accepting the invitation unless God has already started working in your life. Perhaps you do not yet realize it, perhaps you do. This can and does happen in countless ways but rest assured, that He loves you just as you are. We are invited because He first loved us, and His Son Jesus gave His life as a ransom for all who would come to Him. In Christ we encounter a loving God who is willing to step into the breach to have a relationship with His people. It is Jesus who saves, and calls us to a holy calling. His grace reaches all, and His blood covers any amount of sin. Will you accept His invitation?
