PLEASING YOUR MASTER

TITUS 2: 9-10

KEY VERSE: TITUS 2: 10

FOCAL POINT: ARE YOU PLEASING YOURSELF OR YOUR MASTER?

INTRODUCTION:

SLAVERY WAS A REALITY IN THIS CULTURE IN CRETE. AMONG THE SLAVES WERE UNDOUBTEDLY CHRISTIAN SLAVES OR PAUL WOULD NOT HAVE USED THIS EXAMPLE. THE APPLICATION PAUL USED AS A CHRISTIAN SLAVE APPLIES CONTEMPORARILY:

EVERY EMPLOYER IS SEEKING A DEVOTED EMPLOYEE.

MANIFESTING GOOD HABITS AND ATTITUDES BY A CHRISTIAN EMPLOYEE COULD WELL OPEN THE DOOR TO SALVATION TO A NON-CHRISTIAN EMPLOYER.

READ TITUS 2: 9-10.

TITUS 2: 10:

WORD STUDY ON FIDELITY: to put in order, arrange, make ready, prepare

to ornament, adore, to embellish with honor, gain honor

FIDELITY REFERENCE: 1 CORINTHIANS 4: 2, HEBREWS 3:5

GOD’S MESSAGE OF SALVATION CANNOT BE OVERLOOKED, WHEN CHRISTIANS DISPLAY RESPECT FOR AUTHORITY.

THE WORD IF FILLED WITH INSTRUCTIONS ON CHRISTIAN LIVING. HOW DO YOU THINK? HOW DO YOU TALK? HOW DO YOU ACT? HOW DO YOU REACT? HOW DO YOU HANDLE YOUR FINANCES? HOW DO YOU HANDLE DIFFICULT ISSUES WHETHER FAMILY OR NON-FAMILY? KNOW THIS, NONBELIEVERS ARE WATCHING!

PAUL ALSO ADDRESSED ISSUES TO SLAVES IN EPHESIANS 6: 5-9, 1 TIMOTHY 6: 1-2.

LIFE APPLICATION: THE QUESTION IS, DOES YOUR CHARACTER POINT TO CHRIST’S CHARACTER OR TO YOUR FLESH?
