Week 2 in our series on Paul's letter to Titus. Here we examine Titus 2:1-10.Summary: "Teach what accords with sound doctrine"
"There are two things, conscience and reputation; conscience for yourself, reputation for your neighbor. Those who, being clear in their consciences, neglect their reputations, are being cruel."
In this passage, Paul reveals the kind of supernatural lives that spring forth from a belief in the Gospel. There is a way that older men, older women, younger women, younger men, teachers and slaves can live that confirms the veracity of the Gospel. Our "reputations" are meant to proclaim the Gospel and, because the Gospel is for sinners, sometimes that happens in the midst of our greatest failures. (There is a pretty good story of my "goober-ness" in this one).
