This is the second video in a series of teaching videos on the book of Titus. You can find the first video here.
This wonderful book addresses issues that faced Titus as he was left on the Island of Crete with a set of new believers and new churches to guide and teach. The Apostle Paul sets out the key issues that Titus needs to deal with and defines the key features that should be seen in a believer’s life. This makes for an interesting and challenging read. The question is – do I measure up? Do I add value to the gospel or do I detract from it? Can I handle false teaching and teachers? Watch this Vblog for a brief overview of a very interesting book.

Paul is a great example of the attitude we should have. He loved the gospel. He gave up his life to spread it around the world. He also loved the saints and the local gatherings of Christians. He gave his life for God’s saints and God’s assemblies.
Value what God values. What is God doing today? Through His gospel people are being saved from all nations. What is God doing with these saved people? They are gathered together around Christ in local churches, and have the privilege to be part of the work He is doing. Value the gospel and the assemblies.
So Paul valued what God valued. He knew and loved Christians. He greets them by name and speaks kind words to them. He saw himself as a partner with saints in the Lord’s work.
And look at the example of these saints! Phoebe serves a local assembly, helping many including Paul. Prisca and Aquila risk their neck for Paul and the assemblies, and have a groupRead More
On Philippians 3:7-10:
There is a powerful statement of divine grace in these verses. What Paul was and did was nothing. What Christ had done was everything. Nor was it just the Jewish background he counted loss. Paul gave his statement universal validity with the word ‘everything.’ Absolutely nothing could transcend for him the value of knowing Christ.
