Obedience Reflections from Titus and I & II Timothy

Titus 2:1

1. You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine.

2. Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.


Obedience Point #15  The older you get, the more you should concentrate on endurance. (Vs. 2)  Paul reminds us that faith demands not only a good beginning, but also a pace we can maintained until the finish.  As you age, are you still registering for another race?  Where is your next finish line?

Ranking Your Obedience:

Low   1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   High

The Greeks had a race in their Olympic games that was unique. The winner was not the runner who finished first. It was the runner who finished with his torch still lit.      J. Stowell, Fan The Flame, Moody, 1986, p. 32.
