Living an extraordinary life. Why?
Paul’s letter to Titus offers some challenging teaching for the Cretan christians. Why should they listen to Titus? Why should we listen to Titus?
Do we get in the way?
Paul doesn't mince his words as he advises his trusted co-worker Titus, who is helping establish the new churches in Crete. They hold good for us too, though. Do we put obstacles in the way of new Christians? Do we expect them to conform to our way of thinking? Do we consider ourselves to be better Christians just because we've been Christians for longer?
We must do everything we can to encourage and build up new followers of Christ.
Paul's letter to Titus
Paul's letter to Titus has been described as a handbook for church leaders, but it's much more than that. If we can get over our outrage at some of the words he uses that, if we read them too literally, jar on our 21st century ears, we can see that this little letter has much to teach us as members of the Church today.
We are a serving church.
We do many things to serve others in our community and beyond. But complacency has no place in Christian discipleship. How do we serve better? How do we reach those we don't at the moment? How do we get closer to serving as Jesus served?
