For the Grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all,
training us to renounce impiety and worldly passions,
and in the present age to live lives that are
self-controlled, upright, and godly,
while we wait for the
manifestation of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin,
to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people,
totally committed to doing good deeds.
Prayers and blessings over you and your family
for a joyous Christmas
and a blessed and fruitful year of ministry.
Beth, Debra, Ruth
