Daily Devotions


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

The Pastoral letters or epistles contain a great deal of good advice for everyone seeking to please Yahweh, not merely ministers. Paul tells Titus to warn the brethren to be respectful of the authorities that exist in their world. We cannot become as some in the world who are at constant odds with the governments of this age. We know that these governments have no respect for Yahweh or Yahshua and certainly pay no heed to the Law. However, Paul is clear that we must be subject the authority and position they have. We are to strive to live at peace with our neighbors and to be considerate of others. After all, we were once counted among this group. Yahweh blessed us to hear the truth contained in His Word and we all are thankful for this great fact. We cannot now look down on those who have not yet come to a knowledge of the truth. We have been freed from the servitude of sin and must now make a concerted effort to be living examples to those around us. Activism is not the answer. Living a peaceful existence with our neighbors is.
