May 6th message notes
Text: Titus 3:1-8
- Success is doing our very best at whatever God has called us to
- Success demands a readiness and readiness demands preparation.
- That preparation enables us to lovingly and fearlessly speak the
truths of God's grace with a yieldedness to God and a humility to those
around us so as to reach as many as possible for Christ with the Gospel of
the grace of God.
- One appropriate goal in life should be to influence as many as
possible for Christ.
Read Titus 3:1-8
- ready (willing and able), for every good work
- Right heart, Right methods, Right message
- That makes you ready before God and Profitable unto men (for
- Theme/Key thought
- Godliness in the world/Salvation (the profit) of men
Yieldedness to God and man in dealing with and winning people to day.
v1. Subjection and humility are part of readiness
- Ready = right heart, right methods, right message
v2. Christ like character
v3. No one is worthy but wee were no different!
- Luke 18:10-14 The Pharisee and the publican
- Aunt Louise was offended that some asked her if she was saved
v4. When did the kindness and love of Got to man appear cf. 2:11?
- dispensationally acts 9; - Personally when you trusted Christ
v.5. The heralding of the inability of works to save
- Saved = saved from being judged for our sins because Christ was
judged in my place
- Jn 3:3 (born from above (two words in greek),
in one word = regeneration (born again) cf., 2 Cor. 5:17
v6. Holy Spirit = poured out or as in Rom 5:20 and 1 Tim 1:14 super abounded
- this is the economy or dispensation and the chief of sinners is
- 1 Timothy 1:14, 15
v7. Justified = declared righteous by God!
v8. Believed God = demonstrated by christ like deeds constantly done for His
- May we be profitable in reaching men for Christ.
Is it important? Yes, 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4
Is it literal and bodily? Yes, John 20:27
Is it Motivating? Yes, Titus 2:11-14
Resurrection...how it is vindicated, verified, and demonstrated in the
life of a believer.
Resurrection in 1 Peter 1:3 verifies the truth of a living vibrant (and
for us imminent), hope. For them this hope was a kingdom hope
Does this help us in the economy of grace? Yes, as in Titus 2:13, and 1
Thessalonians 4:14, 18
Also (concerning resurrection):
It declares His deity Rom 1:4
It declares Him to be the Son of God Rom 1:4
It declares Him to be the Messiah Acts 2:36
It declares the Word of God to be true Act Jn 2:19; 2:29-36; 13:32-34
It declares His coming judgment upon sin Acts 17:31
it declares the truth of the kingdom forgiveness Acts 3:26
it declares the truth of the kingdom promises Acts 3:15-21
It declares the third part of the gospel of grace 1Co 15:3,4
It declares our justification Rom 4:25
It declares the believer's hope to be living 1Pt.1:3
It declares His coming at the rapture 1Co 11:26
It declares His finished work till He comes 1co 11:26
It declares our daily victory over sin Rom 6:3, 4
It declares our daily and vital pursuit Phil 3:10-12
It brings an end to fear of death Heb 2:15
It makes 2 Co 5:21 true …the righteousness of God in Him
It clarifies all of life's issues.
1 Peter 1:8, "Whom having not seen ye love."
- How did he know they loved Him?
- How do we know if someone loves Him?
- Your love for the Lord will be directly proportionate to the value you
place upon Him i.e., His will and Word.
- You don't sincerely love Him if you don't consistently and sincerely
yield to Him.
- If you do love Him, you won't have to tell anyone
- If someone keeps telling you about how much they love Him (tooting
their own horn), they probably don't.
- Fear of God = loving consistent honor and yieldedness.
So, loving and yielded reverential respect.
- What does your life revolve around? Hopefully, a Risen Savour.
Unshackled by Grace
Day of Grace
Ministries, Inc. would like to propose a program that would be a sort of
'Unshackled' for those who have come into the grace message out of the
errors of denominationalism. Interested? We will need your story; how did
you come into the grace message, out of what, what was the key thing that
helped you start to think.
I would like to
publish the collected stories (testimonies) of men and women who have come
to the Bible to sincerely try to disprove it or show it to be false in any
way—scientific or otherwise—and have rather become believers.
The articles would appear here and we
could have an index if the need arises.
I know there are many
and to the best of my knowledge most if not all who have sincerely tried
have been converted.
We could start by posting them on this site and publishing them in book form
if that was the Lord's will.
Please feel free to send me information (i.e., names, contacts, internet
info, etc., about these people or to submit an article to
I am considering calling the book "Those Who Tried..."
Remember: It is the epistles of Paul
alone that unfold “the revelation of the mystery” (Romans 16:25), and it is
understanding this truth that sheds light on how to interpret and apply all
the rest of the Word of God. Paul’s letters are the key that unlocks the
rest of the Bible to our complete understanding. All of the issues that are
progressively revealed in the Scriptures are concluded as a part and parcel
of the revelations given to Paul. The place of the law; justification by
faith; the basis of Israel’s salvation and kingdom; the place of sign gifts;
all are answered by the truth God gave through Paul.
