Second Reading for the Baptism of the Lord Year C

Titus 2:11-14; 3:4-7

Summary: God's grace saves us and teaches us to live rightly. Jesus Christ gave Himself to cleanse us. Through His mercy, we are renewed by the Holy Spirit and made heirs of eternal life.

Saved by God's Grace


The grace of God has appeared, saving all and training us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live temperately, justly, and devoutly in this age, as we await the blessed hope, the appearance of the glory of our great God and savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to deliver us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for himself a people as his own, eager to do what is good.

When the kindness and generous love of God our savior appeared, not because of any righteous deeds we had done but because of his mercy, He saved us through the bath of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he richly poured out on us through Jesus Christ our savior, so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life.
