A Reminder For Us Believers…Be Gracious!

Posted by Scott on October 15, 2009

Titus 3:1-7

1. Submit to the governing authorities-God has placed them in charge for a reason

2. Be obedient by living under the laws of the land so long as they do not violate God’s high law.

3. Do good to everyone every chance you get.

4. Do not talk bad about other people in an evil, untrue manner.

5. Do not get into fights constantly.

6. Be gentle with other people around you, be gracious.

7. Be courteous to those around you.

Remember, we were once unbelievers thinking the opposite of these things. We were once unholy and unruly in our ways in this world. However, God did a tremendous work in our hearts so that we can treat people differently. This work in our lives enable us to treat other respectfully, graciously, and with tenderness in order to win them over to the Lord.

Remember, God showed us undeserved favor when He saved us. This same grace can be shown to our fellow man as we go about our daily routines. Those not in our spiritual family may not act right, but how can they, their father is the father of lies, so they remain deceived all the time, but we on the other hand can live in contrast to that, by pouring on the love to them which our adversary hates.
