Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.
Context: Paul has instructed Titus to appoint elders in Crete. He warns that there are many who are insubordinate, empty talkers and deceivers…”
Titus 1:16 “They profess to know God, but they deny Him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.”
Observation: Paul says that people that live in disobedience are “unfit for any good work.” Clearly, we are not saved through our obedience (Ephesians 2:8-9), but our works in some way evidence the faith we need to lead in the Kingdom of God (Titus 1:5-9). Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we need to walk the talk.
Application: “Lord, give me the strength to acknowledge You by my works. May the soil of my life give Your seed the opportunity to bear fruit (Matthew 13).”
Do your works deny Christ or support your profession?
