Daily Devotional in Titus 2

Daily Nugget:
The world is unconsciously looking for reliable examples to follow. Because of that need for guidance, Christians have many eyes on them watching how they react in certain situations.  If those observing eyes see them react favorably, it is a boon for the Christian beliefs and lifestyle.  If unfavorable reactions are seen, it weighs negatively on other’s feelings toward Christianity.

Keeping this responsibility in mind, Paul reminded Titus how important it is for all Christians to make a difference in the community around them.

We are not just here to be saved , and soak up the goodness of God, but to be a testimony for Christ.  Paul reminded three groups of their responsibilities. He addressed the:

 

Too many Christians sit back and let the world go by, and then wonder why the world is not the same world they knew in their youth.  In most cases, it is because those that knew better did nothing. If we do not tell the world how God expects people to live and behave, who will?

Today’s Thought: Whatever your lot in life, build something on it to the glory of God.

Today’s Reading: Titus 2
 1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
 2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
 3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
 6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
 7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
 8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
 9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;
 10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
 11 ¶ For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
 15 ¶ These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
