Letters to Tim and Titus

This past week flew! I looked at the reading plan this morning and saw that we have a free day tomorrow and only have 26 days left until we are done with the New Testament! That means summer is just around the corner! Fun!!


We just got done reading some letters Paul sent to his proteges that are starting new churches. Those letters were chuck full of practical information! However, before Paul gets started on the practical instructions, he encourages both of them in their faith. I loved how Paul starts his letter to Titus by reminding him of the reason he is doing what he is doing. (It’s a good reminder for us today as well!)


“Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect and the acknowledgement of the truth which accords with godliness, in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began…” (Titus 1:1-2)


In one sentence, Paul summed up the life of a Christian! We have faith in God, we acknowledge (verbally- Matt. 10:33) the truth found in Christ, we live out our faith (actions) in godliness, and have the hope of eternal life.

Boom!

That’s it! Paul summed up perfectly why we do what we do.


The goal for Paul, Timothy and Titus, was to share the hope they had with everyone they met. That should be our goal too!


By reading the Bible everyday you are equipping yourself with “the truth” and you are learning how to live a godly life and you are being reminded of the hope of eternal life with Jesus. You have 26 days left before you are an expert! 😉.

Joking aside, you have WAY more knowledge than Timothy and Titus had by reading the New Testament this year! So, now, I challenge you to get out there and share what you know; the hope for eternal life!😃
