Titus 2:1-10 … Our sin natures are apparent from an early age. Every mother has heard the words … “you can’t tell me what to do,” either verbally or by actions, even from infants. And the attitude sticks with us into adult life. Titus is filled with doctrine (which is the sound teaching of Scripture) and we have some of it here … how older people should behave and contribute to the community; how younger men and women should similarly behave and contribute … as examples, with pure doctrine and dignity … so that the Word of God will not be dishonored (v.5). That behavior extends into employment (which is exactly what a bondservant is, someone serving under contract), so that our testimony as believers shows our “good faith toward God our Savior in every respect” (v.10).
That’s an interesting, but spiritually ignorant assertion. Presidents and plumbers aren’t called to be preachers, but if they are believers, they are called to show forth their good faith, adorning God’s Word, in every respect. That’s true of us as well; we should be showing our good faith, adorning God’s Word, in every respect.
