Daily Scripture: Day 325—Titus 2

From Handbook to Scripture, Day 325

READING: TITUS 2

Paul gives Titus clear directives concerning the way each group (older men, older women, younger women, young men, and slaves) in the assemblies should conduct themselves (2:1–10). This is followed by a concise affirmation of the hope and transforming power of the gospel of Christ (2:11–15).

Titus presents Christ as the supreme manifestation of the grace, mercy, and redemptive purposes of God. It is by His grace that we are justified, and through Him we have become heirs who enjoy the hope of eternal life. This hope is in “the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus” (2:13).

Prayer: Lord, may I deny ungodliness and worldly desires and live sensibly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus.
