Devotions 21-10-07 (Titus 2:15)

"These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you.

Another translation, The Message, says the same thing in a little more informal way. "Tell them all this. Build up their courage, and discipline them if they get out of line. You're in charge. Don't let anyone put you down."

I would put it my own words like this. "Talk to others about what I have said and encourage them to speak to others about these important biblical truths. If they disagree with these truths explain to them why they are wrong. Don't be bothered by those who disagree with you. They are not disagreeing with you but God. Stand on what God says in His Word and do not back down because what God says in His Word in right and truth."

This is our assignment as believers. I need to be busy doing this all the days of my life. Others have taught me and encouraged me and now it is my turn to teach others. The Christian life is never boring if we will just obey the Lord in this verse. If I will step out in faith to do this He will be with me and use me for His glory.

Lord, Your way is the most fulfilling way to live. Help me to follow these simple but profound truths in Titus 2:11-15. Verse 15 is my assignment and I must prayerfully seek to do this with God's strength and power. Thank You Lord for Your patience and love for me and for the whole world.
