Titus 2:14 The Passion Translation (TPT)

14 He sacrificed himself for us that he might purchase our freedom from every lawless deed and to purify for himself a people who are his very own,[a] passionate to do what is beautiful in his eyes.


  1. Titus 2:14 We are a people encircled by God himself. The compound Greek word periousios is translated from “around,” as a circle, and the verb “to be.” It can mean something surrounded by something. It can be charted by a dot within a circle. As the circle surrounds the dot, so God is around each one of his saints. The circle has the dot all to itself. So God has his very own all to himself. We are unique in that we belong only to him. Uniquely his, we are monopolized by God, taken into himself by grace through faith and surrounded by his love.
