It has been good to study the words of Paul to Titus this week in our revival. Titus was a true friend of Paul, one that Paul had the joy of leading to Christ and then watch him grow in his faith to the point of being a trusted friend and communicator of the Gospel to all people. The words with which Paul instructed Titus ring true today. In chapter 2 v. 11-12 Paul writes
“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age.”
If we as believers will just follow these words how different our lives and community would be. My prayer is that we will heed the Word of God and be changed by Christ dwelling in each one of us. Since God’s Word is alive and active these words will mean different things to each person, however it is when we allow the Holy Spirit to move in our souls convicting of sin, reaffirming our faith, directing our lives that we see God’s hand upon us as an individual and a church.
Many of us see the words and skip over them because we have heard it before. So the task before us is to take the knowledge and do it, for the glory of God!
