It's my practice, in addition to my regular Bible reading, to use Biblegateway and their " the bible in a year program." I use it because there are many, many translations and I feel it  helps understanding to read the word of God not just in my favorite translations but also in a different one every year. Sometimes a verse just hits you like it never has before. You go back and check and yep, it says the same thing basically, it just never "hit" you that way before. Here's a couple of verses that wowed me yesterday from Titus 2:11-14   (Good News Translation)

11 For God has revealed his grace for the salvation of all people. 12 That grace instructs us to give up ungodly living and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this world, 13 as we wait for the blessed Day we hope for, when the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ[a] will appear. 14 He gave himself for us, to rescue us from all wickedness and to make us a pure people who belong to him alone and are eager to do good.

what I love about that verse is that is plainly states who Jesus is.

Also just noticed the emphasis on living godly lives. Is that our purpose on earth?

I always thought it was thinktank. A Godly life is one of Loving since God=Love

I think we are here to light the way, in this stage of the reconciliation of all things- and to accomplish our priesthood and sonship through the grace of God and the experience of the things we suffer- even as Jesus learned obedience through the things He suffered, and what Ded said :o) that is walking in the light, which is love, which is the means of the reconciliation of all things and the stuff that will bind us all together in the All IN ALL.

This can be read to include those who haven't officially believed on the name of Jesus yet.
