We have made it through! After spending a few months look at Paul’s letters to the New Testament Churches, we have reached the conclusion. If you haven’t already, take time to read through these passages and share below what stands out to you from them. If you would like some encouragement from past devotionals we have been doing, you can click here.
Here are 3 lessons learned and insights from Titus 1- Philemon.
A Charge to Disciple Others
Are you discipling others around you? Discipling others allows us to live out Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:19-20. When we invest in others’ spiritual growth, it also shows them that they too can disciple others around them. Read Titus 2 and watch this devotional. Then pray that God provides an opportunity for you to disciple someone today
Share your Story
Sharing your personal testimony about God’s work in your life is a powerful way to give glory to Him and build up the faith of other believers. Your real life experiences with God’s grace, guidance, and provision offer encouragement to others as they explore their faith. The great news is that we all have a story of how we came to know Jesus as our savior. How did you come to know Jesus? Do you know how to share it with others? Read Titus 3 and watch this devotional. Thank, take time to write out your story so you can share it with others.
Be part of the Reconciliation Process
Having a ministry of reconciliation is vital because division and broken relationships are pervasive issues that deeply hurt people and communities. Following Christ’s example, who urged forgiveness and reconciliation, it helps repair fractures in society to reflect God’s desire. Are you willing to be part of the reconciliation process for others? What are you willing to do to bring reconciliation so that others can come to know Jesus? This is a great challenge for us today. Read Philemon and watch this devotional for encouragement.
