think about it.
Why can God's Word--the Bible--be trusted? How would you explain that to someone else?
Paul is one consistent guy, particularly when it comes to how he corresponds in writing. So when I start reading one of Paul's letters (like Titus today), sometimes I'm tempted to speed read through those first introductory verses so I can move on to what I perceive to be the more important stuff. (Ever feel this way?) Well, when I (we) do that, we're really shortchanging ourselves.
In Titus 1:1-3 Paul essentially describes himself and how he sees his role as a Christ-follower. It's really quite a rich description. And as I slowed down and considered what Paul was saying, it got me thinking about my own role as a "servant of God."
Ok, now it's your turn. How do you see your role as a servant of God and follower of Christ? What does that look like in your day-to-day life? Tami W.
