GENTLENESS

July 21, 2014

Monday

 

Titus 3:2

 

To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

LESSON

 

Up to know Paul has been concerned with the internal arrangements of the Cretan churches and the duties of their members to one another. Now he comments briefly on their relationship to the civil power and their pagan environment generally. The point he makes is that they should be models of good citizenship precisely because the new, supernatural life of the Spirit bestowed by Spirit baptism finds expression in such an attitude.

 

Memory Verse: Galatians 5:22
