Titus - Chapter Three

THINKING BIBLICALLY - Part 4           Page 4
V. 8 (cont'd.)

** How should we speak about the gospel?

"...confidently..."

** What impact will that have on our behavior?

We who have believed God will be careful to engage in good deeds.

** Who benefits from that godly behavior and how?

"These things are good and profitable for men."
We display the life, light, joy and peace of our regenerated Christian life and it serves as a contrast to the death, darkness, sadness and fear of the unsaved world around us. Thus drawing them to the Savior which is both "good and profitable".

V. 9 ** What are we to avoid while living for Christ?

"...foolish controversies and genealogies and strife and disputes about the Law..."

** How does the value of those things compare to our regenerated godly behavior?

"...they are unprofitable and worthless..."

V.10 ** While Titus is busy instructing the Christians on Crete in the matters of genuine Christianity, godly behavior and the gospel of salvation by grace, how is he to treat any factious men who would be teaching things contrary to sound doctrine?

He is to reject that individual.

** What is he to do before the factious man is rejected?

He is to warn (admonish) him, twice!

V.11 ** If the rebel does not respond to sound doctrine, what do we know about him?

"...such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned."

V.12 ** As Paul concludes his letter to Titus, what does he say that would make Titus know how important he is to Paul?

"...make every effort to come to me at Nicopolis.."
