Titus 3:9-15 Living as people of Grace…within His Church

My sermon notes from Sunday, Feb 5th as we continue our study through Titus. Remember, these are my study notes and not a manuscript of the sermon.  To see the sermon each week please visit http://www.fbcap.net.

Titus 3:9-15

But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless. 10 As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, 11 knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.

12 When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there. 13 Do your best to speed Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way; see that they lack nothing. 14 And let our people learn to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful.

15 All who are with me send greetings to you. Greet those who love us in the faith.

Grace be with you all.

 

Titus 3:9-15

Living as people of grace…within the body

Why are our relationships within the church so important?  What does it matter how we deal with one another?  How do we handle sin within the family?  Is the purity of the church that important?

 There are 2 reasons we must be careful to answer these questions in a biblical manner.

1:1 – For the sake of the church

Christ loves and cares for His church.  How we conduct ourselves within the body life of the church is very important.  IT IS HIS CHURCH!

3:8 – For the benefit of my life

Let’s make our life count (v. 8 profitable.)

People of grace avoid meaningless dialogue– v. 9

 

 

People of grace reject divisive people– vv. 10-11

Is this difficult? YES

Is it worth it? YES

Will God honor it? YES

Will God bless it? YES

My goal as a pastor

 

People of grace follow faithful examples – vv. 12-13

We have so many examples of men and women that have faithfully lived for the Lord and loved His church.

As members…we need to reach out to others and encourage “ONE ANOTHER”  to join us on the journey of living the Christian life.

 

People of grace maintain good works – vv. 14-15

 

GREET THOSE WHO LOVE US IN THE FAITH!!!

GRACE BE WITH YOU ALL.
