Titus 2-3; 2 Timothy 1
Did you notice Paul’s repetitive emphasis in Titus on doing good works? We must always remember that we are not saved by works, but that a person who is saved is going to do good works. I pray for our church to be known for doing good in our community and beyond.
In 2 Timothy 1: 12, Paul writes that he is not ashamed of the Gospel because he knows who he believes in. Note, this is a who, not a what. Who is this who? Too often I hear people professing to be Christians say “I believe in God.” This is the easy answer, but I wonder if they say this because they are ashamed to say the who is Jesus Christ as Paul has pointed out earlier in this chapter (verse 10), or they aren’t sure what they believe. We need to be resolute that we believe the who is Jesus who died for our sins, rose on the third day, and is seated at the right hand of God.
