Due to a technical difficulty we only tapped the music for today. My Sermon Outline is below.
Titus 2:15 Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.
Our Christian Duties - Titus 3:1-2 Remind them to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed, to malign no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing every consideration for all men.
Philippians 3:20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;
Be ready to do Good Works
Do not Malign Anyone
Be Considerate of others
Changing people’s hearts one individual at a time is the only way to bring meaningful. Lasting change of our communities and nations. - John Macarthur
Our Unsaved Condition - Titus 3:3; 9-11 For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. ..But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and strife and disputes about the Law, for they are unprofitable and worthless. Reject a factious man after a first and second warning, knowing that such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.
Before Salvation we were
Rom 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Our Salvation - Titus 3:4-7 But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
God’s Love for all Mankind
Reap the rewards of God’s Mercy
Renewing of the Holy Spirit - 2Co 5:17
Our Mission – Titus 3:8 This is a trustworthy statement; and concerning these things I want you to speak confidently, so that those who have believed God will be careful to engage in good deeds. These things are good and profitable for men.
1Pe 2:12 Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation.
