Titus Three: In Closing…

Posted: October 23, 2011 in Titus

Paul closes this short letter to Titus by exhorting him to encourage his church to devote themselves to good works. Isn’t it amazing how lazy we get in this area? I don’t know about you, but I tend to fall back on the ‘ole “I’ll do good as the Holy Spirit leads” routine.
   While its good to be obedient, I think that this functions sometimes as a copout. Paul tells Titus to be proactive, to look for areas to do good in. We should follow this example by adapting the mindset that we’re not going to wait for opportunities to pop up- instead we’re going to look for them, and then we’ll do it.
