Today you should read: Titus 2:9-15
“Then they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive in every way.” Titus 2:10
This is the starting point for the rest of today’s passage. Verses 11-15 tell us of God’s grace revealed to us in salvation through Jesus. It tells us of how we are cleansed from sin, freed from its power and made to be a people for God. This passage is chalk full of some great truths that I encourage you to meditate on and pray through. What I want to hit on are verses 10 and 15. In verse 10 Paul talks about making the teaching of God attractive and in verse 15 he tells us to teach these things (all these truths we just read). So here is what I think we need to walk away with today:
Does my life make Jesus look good?
We don’t need to market or package Jesus any differently than He is to make Him more palatable for those around us. Sadly many churches are doing just that and it is distorting the gospel and making Jesus into someone He is not. We do, however, need to live a life that makes our Savior look good. We need to live in such a way that people notice a difference and want what we have. If we live a life that looks the same as everyone else then people will see no need to “add Jesus” to their lives. And the opposite is true as well. If we go out on the corner with a megaphone telling everyone to “turn or burn” we will turn people off to Jesus. But if we live our life believing the truths from today’s passage and then lovingly share them with others then we “make teaching about God our Savior attractive in every way”.
