Titus Two Women

The verses in Titus two are a message from God to every single lady. God has set down a pattern that every woman should strive towards. Being a Titus two woman of godliness should be the goal and desire of every mother for her daughters, of every husband for his wife, of every child for their mother, and of every believer for her own life. 

If you want to be vital in Christ's church, useful in God’s Kingdom, and rewarded at Christ's Bema Seat Judgment these verses are your marching orders. There is no clearer pattern for a godly woman in all of God's Word than the twelve character qualities recorded in these verses. This is what God desires, explains, and expects from obedient and godly women.

If you are looking for a passage to study in depth that can change your life—here it is. If you want a special passage to memorize and meditate upon that can transform your thinking and life’s direction—here it is. And, if you want to go through life confident that you are doing exactly what God wants you to do each day—here it is. 

Most of us struggle with purpose, wondering if our days are spent wisely. Titus two contains a lesson from God that you don’t have to go to a far away place to accomplish. You do not have to get financial support to start, you don’t have to have any spectacular gifting; all you need is to love and follow the Lord and you can start down the “Titus two track.” 

In Titus 2:1-8 God is asking each of us to live in such a way that our life can become a pattern of His grace that can be used to mentor, encourage, coach, tutor, teach, train and guide another’s life towards Him.  

There is nothing greater in life than to be useful for God! Christ's church was born into a sin-warped, sin-darkened world of mixed-up marriages, sin-scarred lives, and confused families. God graciously gave them everything they needed to become godly wives, mothers, husbands, and fathers.

But, they needed something else. These new believers needed coaching, training, modeling, and encouraging in a one-on-one relationship. Godly behavior is a series of choices; and those men and women had to be nurtured in daily skills that would lead to loving marriages and families.
