Doing Good in the World
What is your reputation? What do people think about when they hear your name? When people in your school, neighborhood, workplace talk about you, what do you think they say? Most importantly, because of your life, what do others think of Jesus Christ?
Paul’s concern that he expresses to Titus on the island of Crete is the church’s godly witness for Christ in a godless world. It’s the good works of believers that provide a platform for verbal witness that points others to God’s grace.
In Titus 3:1-3, Paul gave Titus his third assignment: “remind them” and keep on reminding them to do good in the world. Reminders of God’s grace motivate us to reveal His grace to others by doing good.
