The Gospel in a paragraph

I'm always amazed at the words of Paul as he writes his letters.  Of course I can't forget they were inspired words, but God had gifted him to be a wonderful voice for what God wants us to hear.  

In the following paragraph Paul describes to Titus the gospel in one paragraph.  It's clear, simple and gives us direction for today and the days ahead.  

Take a few moments and "chew" on this amazing passage.  Each time I read it I find it deeper than the time before.  

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. 12 And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, 13 while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. 14 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.

What is the gospel?  THIS is the gospel.
