The armour should be put on before the battle, not just at the battle.

TITUS 1

We get a few glimpses of what Paul thought of Titus in 2 Corinthians 8:16, 17 and 23; and 7:13.

Tit 1:1 Titus receives instructions from Paul on how to bring proper behaviour and order to the assemblies, on the Island of Crete. In Paul's letters to Timothy "doctrine" is more often mentioned, but in this letter to Titus, Paul stresses behaviour.

Tit 1:2 Let us remember that Christianity is not an improvement of Jewish religion. It is something entirely new, and we are here told that it was in the heart of God before the world began.

Tit 1:3 God's thoughts, from a past eternity, are revealed now through His Word. Paul's teachings are according to the commandment of God our Saviour.

Tit 1:5 The purpose of Titus being left at Crete, and the purpose of this letter. He was to appoint elders in every assembly. In the following verses we have instructions as to who would make a suited elder, and by this commission, Titus had the authority of the apostle Paul to appoint them. Today, we have the Scriptures to show us the proper qualifications of a man who would be suited to act as an elder or shepherd, but today we do not have apostolic authority to appoint them. There are no official elders today according to the mind of God in His Word.

Tit 1:9 "Sound doctrine" (good instructions) will result in proper behaviour to the glory of God.

Tit 1:10-11 Again and again we see false teachers trying to bring Christians under the law. Their mouths are to be stopped.

It is always the highest truth which is first given up.

TITUS 2

Tit 2:2-10 We have instruction for behaviour for aged men, aged women, young women, young men and servants.

Tit 2:4-5 The conduct that would please the Lord and would be according to sound teaching, in young women. And it is the elder women who are to instruct them in this. We need this godly instruction today, for we are inclined to be influenced by the careless behaviour that is general today.

Tit 2:6-8 Here we see that which is suited to young men. .

Tit 2:9-10 This was the privilege of servants (slaves). Believers should not be rebellious or covetous (such as strikes).

Tit 2:12 We should turn from evil things and live soberly (personally), and righteously (toward others), and godly (before God).

Liberty of the will is just slavery to the devil.

TITUS 3

Tit 3:1-2 Behaviour that is being neglected today. No matter how others may act, and no matter how unjust the authorities may be, we are to be obedient to the laws of our country, for the government is chosen by God. (Rom. 13:1). We are not to speak evil of it, or of anyone. Gentleness and meekness are not natural to believers, but remember we have a new nature, and that is the way it acts.

Tit 3:3 We were just like this before the Lord saved us.

Tit 3:4 Gives us the source of salvation.

Tit 3:5 Gives us the way of salvation.

Tit 3:6 Gives us the evidence of salvation.

Tit 3:5-7 They were not told to pray that the Holy Ghost would come to earth... for He had come. So here we are saved, washed, renewed by the Holy Ghost, justified and heirs. What a complete salvation!

Tit 3:8 As a result of all this, let us be careful to maintain good works.
