Devotion – Titus 3

S – he saved us—not by works of righteousness that we had done, but according to his mercy—through the washing of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit. He poured out his Spirit on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior so that, having been justified by his grace, we may become heirs with the hope of eternal life. This saying is trustworthy. I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed God might be careful to devote themselves to good works. These are good and profitable for everyone. But avoid foolish debates, genealogies, quarrels, and disputes about the law, because they are unprofitable and worthless.

 Titus 3:5–9 CSB

O – Titus says to “insist on the work of regeneration and salvation through Jesus Christ.”  “Avoid foolish debates, quarrels and disputes about the law.”  

A – There are still a lot of disputes about the Bible that do not focus on salvation and the daily work of the Holy Spirit.  All of scripture is inspired by God and is equally important.  The message of Christ was acceptance of Him.  He fulfilled and embodied the law.  Our focus should be on Him and our daily relationship.

R – Lord, help me to do this today.
