Sermon Notes

   The last two weeks in Titus 2, we have looked at the importance of the older men and women coming alongside and mentoring younger men and women. Paul mentions that it is a “way of life” we should be teaching and modeling. He describes some of the characteristics of that way of life and some areas that the older men and women can encourage and help others to grow in.

   Today we are looking at ch. 2:9-10 where Paul addresses how slaves are to be submissive to their masters. But we’re not slaves. What do these verse have to do with us today?

   The general principal Paul is teaching is how we are to be submissive to the authorities in our lives whether parents, teachers, or bosses. We will look at five ways he tells us we are to honor and respect those in authority.
