Today on our special friday episode Nick and Jason discuss more questions from the airwaves. First we discuss the insider movement that has infiltrated modern missions and the implications of it. Second we address a question about the new heavens and the new earth. Last Jason briefly discusses the nature of spiritual Israel vs physical Israel.
Today, we continue with our exposition of Titus, and we pick up in verse 6. Last time, we discussed verse 5 and regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit, and verse 6 begins by referring to the Holy Spirit, “whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior.” Our aim today is to address three things in the verse. First, what does it mean for the Holy Spirit to be poured out? Second, what does it mean for him to be poured out richly? And third, what does it mean for him to be poured out through Jesus Christ?
Today, we continue with our exposition of Titus, and we pick up in chapter 3 verses 4 and 5, “But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit.” We will begin today by addressing the kindness and love of God and their appearing and how that is related to our being saved; and if we have time, we will continue on through verse 5 and address the means by which we were saved.
Today, we continue with our exposition of Titus, and we pick up in chapter 3 verse 3. At the end of our last episode, we discussed the necessity for us to show every consideration for all men . . . even the meanest and lowest of men. And verse 3 begins by giving the reason why we are to give consideration for all men . . . even the meanest and lowest of men. We are to do so, “For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another.”
Today, we continue with our exposition of Titus, and we pick up with verse 2 of chapter 3. Nick has already addressed verse 1, which talks about the need for us to be subject to rulers and authorities and ready for every good deed. And verse 2 is a continuation of the same thought. The godly behaviors listed in chapter 3 verse 2 will be our focus today.
Today on our special friday discussion episode Nick and Jason take some time to answer questions that came up on other radio shows we have listened to that we felt did not receive a proper biblical answer. If your husband has a gambling problem should you leave him? If someone at your church is in sin and still taking communion what should you do? If you think your wife is going to have an affair how should you act if you had an affair in the past but were forgiven?
Today we continue in our exposition of the book of Titus by starting in Chapter 3. Paul is giving Titus some ideas of topics which he ought to be teaching and preaching about to his congregation. Titus is told to remind his people to be subject to authorities and to be obedient. We need to ask if these two concepts are synonymous. What does submission really mean and look like? And why is it so important for us to be in subjection to our rulers?
Today, we continue with our exposition of Titus, and we will finish chapter 2 by addressing verse 15, where Paul says to Titus, “These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you.” When Paul says, “These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority,” “these things” is a reference to what he has been talking about in chapter 2. In other words, Paul tells Titus to speak and exhort and reprove with all authority the things listed in verses 1 to 14.
Today, we continue with our exposition of Titus, picking up in chapter 2 verse 14, which says that Christ “gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.” We will try to cover this whole verse today and answer the fundamental question of why Jesus gave himself in order to redeem us and what that has to do with our zeal for good deeds.
Today, we continue with our exposition of Titus, and we pick up with verse 13 of chapter 2. Paul says that we are to live godly, all the while “looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus.” So, as we deny ungodliness and embrace godliness, we are to be looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of God. This will be our focus today. What does it mean to look for the blessed hope and for the appearing of the glory of God?
