titus 1:10-16

10 For there are many who are insubordinate, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision party.[h] 11 They must be silenced, since they are upsetting whole families by teaching for shameful gain what they ought not to teach. 12 One of the Cretans,[i] a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.”[j] 13 This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, 14 not devoting themselves to Jewish myths and the commands of people who turn away from the truth. 15 To the pure, all things are pure, but to the defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their minds and their consciences are defiled. 16 They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.

One response to “titus 1:10-16

  1. Doing the work of the kingdom for gain, whether wealth or position, is reprehensible and plays to my natural man and shows that God is not ruling who I am. It is easy to use ministry and service to advance myself. It is clear why Paul was so adamant that he had to decrease so Christ could increase.

    If we live a life of defeat and guilt, all will feel guilty and condemned. It will be easy for Satan to get footholds in our lives. If we realize we are delivered by grace, yet constrained by His plan, we will live to honor and obey Him.
