Titus - Introduction

THINKING BIBLICALLY - Part 1            Page 4

Psalm 139 (Cont'd.)

V.23 ** What erroneous area of his life does David want to have God search out?

His thought life - being anxious! David knew that he needed to think Biblically and live his life in accordance with what he knew to be true about God.

V.24 ** What is the impact of not thinking Biblically?

It will become hurtful.

** How does David want to live?

"...in the everlasting way"

David knew that the Omniscience of God was concerned with his thought life. But what does the New Testament have to say about that? Was our Lord, Jesus Christ, ever concerned about how we think?

Matthew 9:2-4 "And Jesus knowing their thoughts..."

Matthew 12:22-25 "And knowing their thoughts He said..."

Luke 6:6-8 "But He knew what they were thinking..."

Luke 9:43-47 "But Jesus, knowing what they were thinking..."

** What are some good guidelines for a Christian's thought life? Let's consider two from God's word!

Humble Thinking - Romans 12:3 "...not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think..."

Obedient Thinking - 2Corinthians 10:5 - "...we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ."

OK, with that brief look at how the Lord is concerned with us Thinking Biblically, let's turn to Paul's letter to Titus and we will be introduced to our area of study for the next three weeks.

The Apostle Paul penned this letter to Titus around 66 A.D. from the region known as Macedonia, possibly in Philippi. Titus had been left on the island of Crete (V.5) with some very important things to do.

It is in looking over the shoulder of Titus as he reads this, that we too will learn to practice Thinking Biblically when we encounter the challenges of life.
