A Manner to Reflect

Titus 3:1-11

INTRODUCTION

Truth in Advertising is the concept that you should receive what has been advertised. These people seem to understand the principle.

Walmart – 2 for $3.00 Was $1.50

E Store – Where everything is $1 or more

Local store – Stuff for sale here

We all expect people to live up to the truth of advertising concerning their lives. When we have an idea of what a person claims to believe, we expect them to act a certain way.

For instance when you see these two pictures, which person to you expect to have more difficulty dealing with people? Which person do you expect to be more antisocial?

Paul understood this. Paul expected that followers of Jesus would reflect His image in their daily lives.

MENTORED PEOPLE CAN BE EXPECTED TO REFLECT A CHRIST LIKE MANNER IN THEIR DAILY LIVES.

Titus 3:1-11

3:1 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men.

3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 8 This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.

9 But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. 10 Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. 11 You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned. NIV

1. Mentored People Season Society. 1-2

Paul clearly expects that people who are mentored will embody Christ’s teaching in Matthew 5:13.

Matt 5:13

13 "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. NIV

Jesus challenged his followers to be salt. Salt had two major purposes in Jesus Day. – to season or to preserve. Look how Paul expects followers of Christ to interact with society.

Titus 3:1-11

3:1 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men.
