Dont Forget About Titus
Posted: Wednesday, October 26
Verse of the day:
I am writing to Titus, my true son in the faith that we share. May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior give you grace and peace. (Titus 1:4)
How many letters did Paul write? A baker’s dozen. Most of them were written to specific churches. The cities of Thessaloniki, Corinth, Ephesus, and Philippi will always be known by the letter Paul penned on their behalf. Three letters were written to individuals—Timothy, Philemon, and Titus.
Bible teachers often pair Titus with I Timothy and II Timothy. These three letters carry the nickname “The Pastoral Epistles” because of their focus on church order and church ministry. You might be thinking, “Well . . . Pastor . . . if these are letters written to pastors, then YOU have some reading to do.” It’s true. Timothy and Titus are Pastoral Training 101, but what about you? What does Titus mean to someone who attends church? What does it mean to someone who volunteers at church or serves in church leadership?
I think you should find out.
Titus is 3 chapters. You could read it in 5 minutes. If you’ve ever struggled to find your place in the church body, you should read Titus. If you’ve ever wondered how the church should engage in the secular world, you should read Titus. I could give you 100 more reasons, but by then . . . you could have read Titus!
Raise your Churchgoing IQ. Have a great day and enjoy a 5 minute read. :)
