AUTHORITATIVE OR AUTHORITARIAN?

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Paul summarized his teachings to Titus using these words, "Do not let anyone despise you." Titus 2:15 He added that Titus should communicate these spiritual concepts with confidence "Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Titus had no reason to be "ashamed of the Gospel." Romans 1:16
We too have an authoritative message------the Bible to communicate to others. We need not apologize nor be ashamed of it Though not everyone will receive it When we are speaking God's word and some reject it, they are rejecting God, not us. We are to be authoritative without being authoritarian. We need to know what we believe, communicating it without being a "KNOW IT ALL" We must be sure when we encourage and rebuke with all authority that we are speaking the truth. As we grow in knowing the Scriptures , God can use us to "speak the truth in love" Eph. 4:15 so that no one will despise us. Titus 2:15 nor the Lord.
