Jeremiah 40-42, Titus 3
I am reminded to avoid foolish controversies & quarrels about the law because they are unprofitable & worthless. I can’t help but relate that to today with all the controversy in the world & everybody voicing their own opinions. It is not necessary to feel like your voice must be heard if one believes differently than you, but it is necessary to show the love of Christ to everyone.
“Be ready to do whatever is good”!! If we want to be ready in every situation that presents itself, we have to be continually preparing! Without knowing the exact moment when we’ll need to use all of the knowledge, empathy, mercy, and grace we have stored up for others through feeding ourselves with the mercy and grace god gives us!
5he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Grace be with you all
4Jeremiah the prophet said to them, “I have heard you. Behold, I will pray to the Lord your God according to your request, and whatever the Lord answers you I will tell you. I will keep nothing back from you.” 6Whether it is good or bad, we will obey the voice of the Lord our God to whom we are sending you, that it may be well with us when we obey the voice of the Lord our God.”
Titus 3 reminds us to be humble and remember our own sinfulness when God intervened in our lives to grant salvation. This not because of our good works, and yet we are urged not to be unfruitful but to devote ourselves to good works and serving those in urgent need. May we do so as the hands and feet of Jesus Christ with the good news spreading as a pleasant aroma from life to life.
