Daily Worship - Weekend, 11/11-11/12/2023
This Sunday, Lord willing, we wrap up the study of Titus. Even so, this final passage, Titus 3:12-15, contains some important instructions. Before we get to those, consider what you have learned in our journey through Titus? List some of the highlights in a notebook or on a piece of paper.
What does it mean to be fruitful and unfruitful (v.3:14)? How do we “devote ourselves to good works”? How will you apply the truths you have seen in Titus to your daily walk?
Pray for the gathering this Sunday, and for all the various parts of that gathering – the nursery, the Hospitality team, the worship leaders, the Middle hour, for those who run tech and A/V and the many behind the scenes ministries. That in all of those things, Christ might be honored, and the Saints edified.

What does God require in the fourth and fifth commandments?
Fourth, that on the Sabbath day we spend time in public and private worship of God, rest from routine employment, serve the Lord and others, and so anticipate the eternal Sabbath. Fifth, that we love and honor our father and our mother, submitting to their godly discipline and direction.

What is important about final instructions and greetings. 2) Note Paul’s care for Zenas and Apollos, and his instructions for Titus and the churches on Crete to care and provide for them. How can we apply this in our context? What part does hospitality play in the mission of the church, and in missions? 3) Discuss the three parts of verse 14: devotion to good works, helping in cases of urgent need, and not being unfruitful. What do each of them mean, practically, and how should we apply them.
Oh, How Good it Is - Keith & Kristyn Getty
This song is a fitting way to close out our Titus series as it expresses our desire for unity in Christ and God's help to live in a way that adorns the gospel.
