From Handbook to God’s Promises

God Is Trustworthy

Titus 3:8: Profitable Trust

This verse refers to doctrinal issues (in Titus 3:4–7) related to God’s kindness and mercy in saving us. Paul adds that it’s a trustworthy statement to encourage the church with what God has said and accomplished. If believers trust that God saves sinners, they can trust that He will care for them as His children. By trusting, believers can devote themselves to doing good, rather than worrying about meeting their own needs. This attitude and action prove “good and beneficial for people.”
