Paul commissions Titus to show how the good news of Jesus can transform Cretan culture from within. Paul’s letter to Titus urged him to remind Cretan believers that while they live in a sinful culture, they can be transformed into a new humanity by the same grace that Jesus demonstrated when he died to redeem them.
In Part 2 of our Titus series, Paul mentions a large number of rebellious people who are full of empty talk and deception. Fortunately, Scripture makes a clear distinction between right and wrong to assist Christians in distinguishing what is good and what is not good. Just as Scripture addresses what is right and wrong, it also calls on Christians to defend the truth and combat false teaching.
How often do we focus on doctrine to evaluate a "false teacher" without also considering the (possibly more significant) issue of their behavior? Join us this Sunday as we will continue our sermon series.

Last Sunday we started a new sermon series which will be focusing on the book of Titus. This book challenges us as believers to live a godly way in an ungodly world. Paul writes about the responsibility that comes with being a servant of God, the requirements of being an Elder, as well as the behaviour that is deemed as acceptable before God. Question is, how do we lead a godly life and most importantly, how do we please God.
