”The best way to herald the good news is a confident and vivid display of Christ in the life you live”
For a person to be convinced that God can save him from sin, he needs to be shown someone who has been saved from sin and who, as far as possible, lives a life separated from sin. For a person to be convinced of God’s hope, he must be shown someone who has hope where there was once despair. For a person to be convinced that God can miraculously provide us with love, peace, and happiness, he needs to be shown someone who now radiates those blessings.
In a world that’s hostile to God’s Word and His people, we must give evidence of the transforming, sanctifying work of God. We need to be living testimonies of the grace that saved us and the Spirit that refines into Christlikeness.
To help us understand what our transformed lives should look like, we’ve been studying Paul’s instructions to the churches in Crete. In his letter to Titus, the apostle exhorts specific groups of believers —divided by age and gender—to exhibit character qualities befitting their transformed lives, for the purpose of adorning the gospel through their testimonies. (Please, I oblige you to read the book of Titus. Thank you)
