Why do we forgive? As Christians, the power to forgive doesn't flow from our feelings or whether we think the person requesting forgiveness has earned it or deserves it. In the parable of the wicked servant, Jesus reveals the Father's perspective and expectations concerning the role of forgiveness in the heavenly kingdom.
Who is Christ?
Perhaps the most important question in life is one asked by Jesus in Mathew 16:15. Jesus put it this way, “But who do you say that I am?" This is a question that has eternal ramifications. Where we find ourselves in our study in the book of Titus answers that very question. Please join us in Titus chapter two, as the Apostle Paul makes it crystal clear who Jesus Christ is.
A Misrepresentation of God
All of us hate when someone misrepresents us. It seems clear that the Lord doesn’t appreciate being misrepresented either. What makes the next few verses that we come to in the book of Titus important is that they inform us on how God desires to be represented. Join us as we continue our study as we make our way through the opening verse of chapter two.
Man-Centered Righteousness verses Christ-Centered Righteousness
Titus was left on the Island of Crete to makes sure that the churches in every city would stay on course. Nothing will take a church or an individual off course quicker than misunderstanding of where our righteousness comes from. Join us as we continue our in-depth look at Titus chapter one, focusing on the Righteousness of Christ.
Holding Fast to the Faithful Word of God
Titus found himself on the island of Crete left there to set the churches on a healthy course. To that end, Titus was instructed by the Apostle Paul to establish healthy church leaders. We discover that healthy leadership has little to do with ability. The spiritual health of a church is rooted in the character of those who are leading. And that character is rooted in a relentless grip on the inerrant Word of God. Join us as we begin our study in the book of Titus.

Facing the Winter of Life
The closing verses of 2 Timothy 4 are valuable to us, because in them the Apostle Paul reveals how he faced “End of Life” issues triumphantly. We will all be faced with these issues eventually, and the Lord wants us to “end” well. Join as we receive insight from God’s Word.
How and Why do We Share the Word of God?
The Apostle Paul has told his Spiritual son Timothy that God’s Word is God breathed, and is able to profit, mature, and equip the believer. Because of that, Timothy is commanded to proclaim God’s Word. What are some practical ways that we can do this today? Join us in our study of the opening verses of chapter 4 of 2nd Timothy to discover the answer.
Is the Bible Trustworthy?
Our study in 2 Timothy brings us to the subject of the integrity of God’s Word. The skeptic declares that the Scripture has been changed and re-written numerous times, so that it’s unreliable to speak with authority to us. Join us as we look at the trustworthiness of Scripture and what it’s able to accomplish in our lives.
