Humility

Paul left Titus in Crete to help set up congregations there.

Titus was to instruct them as Paul is saying in this letter.

One thing Paul instructs of Titus, is this:


Titus 3:1-2

1 Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,

2 to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.


As a congregation, we are to be lawful.

To obey authorities as long as they do not go against God.

We are to obey and be ready for every good work.


We should not speak evil of anyone.

The word here means to malign, to insult, slander someone.

This means we should not vilify people.

Whether they are a Christian or not.


That doesn't mean we can't warn against false teaching.

But we should be careful to stay factual and Biblical in those claims.

And pray for those that are led astray.


We are to be peaceable and gentle.

And show humility to all.


The word used for humility also means consideration.

Which means we should give careful thought and sympathetic regard for that person.

Remember that we too have been sinners.

We have also done wrong.


"There but for the grace of God, go I."


Sometimes we need to remember that we are only saved by the Lord, Jesus.

We are no better than anyone else, we have just accepted God's love.

And Jesus is all that is keeping us from the lake of fire which we deserve.
