Discussion for Titus 1

  • Brianna for vs. 15
    What a good reminder! We need to be clean in all our actions! This is good to help our children. When I was in school, I could be talking about something completely harmless and there would always be an associate to turn it into something gross,rude, or sexual. This scripture can help our children not to pick up this habit, and show that we need to keep clean in everything we do.
  • A disciple
    "Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate (worthless)." Jesus wants us to let our light shine so men see His grace in real life: a character and behavior like God!

    Titus 1 vs 10;For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: How true is this verse in reference to churches of this age. Many have left the preaching of the gospel/Christ to motivational speeches, business talks, and self elevation messages today in our various pulpits thereby relegating Christ to the back ground. May God deliver us from such.

    2 Peter 1:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
