    Titus 3:1-7 Puts me in rememberance of how foolish I was and still can be, and how the Lord has been so compassionate and merciful to me, I can be compassionate and merciful to others. This is what we as followers of Christ need to be more of so that others can see Christ the light in a dark, lost world that our Saviour has created for his glory to be revealed in as we let our lights shine for him

    To MPHATSO - the 'more' you need is - ACTS 2:37-38. If you need more than this - then you're out of luck.
    Acts chapter 2 is where the of Jesus Christ began; chapter 2 is the very 1st message preached in the church. All the books hat follow are to ALREADY established churches; they are instructions on what GOD (not man) expects of His people. There is an ORDER to God's word; it's not hit or miss.

    Yes we should have works in our lives as Christians,but we must be careful that our works are the result of the fruit of the Holy Spirit and not based on human effort. All of the striving in the world does not impress God.A Christian artist once wrote,"striving for perfection when the only perfect thing I had was weakness" Think about it! He is the source of fruit and Christian works! Trust Him!
