The life of faith is a spiritual journey beginning at the moment of new birth (regeneration) through personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior, and continuing onward and upward from spiritual infancy—through the stages of spiritual growth— into maturity and beyond. I refer to it as the journey “from the cross to the crown.”
  
The little book of Titus, one of Paul’s “pastoral epistles,” provides a short-course on the life of faith. As we explore the great and timeless truth contained in this epistle, we will refer again and again to the “life of faith” and the journey “from the cross to the crown,” and to the many promises and provisions supplied by God in His matchless grace for those who choose to live in the light of the cross.
This was the subject of the Spring 2011 Conference in Canberra, Australia.

The Transforming Power of Grace 1

The Transforming Power of Grace 1

Paul corrected Peter at Antioch and that effected him in his epistles (2Pe 1:1-4, 2Pe 3:14-18). We all have to be willing to grow. Paul grew 15-17 years before he exercised his Apostleship. Paul had left Titus on Crete heading to Rome having been summoned. Titus is probably the second to last book he wrote. Theme is "setting things in order". What is the purpose of God's training us? The outline (1) Spiritual Leadership, (2) Sound Teaching, (3) Sanctified Living. Spiritual leaders should teach and live in a way that they have an impact on others to live in a way that brings honor and glory of Jesus Christ. Spiritual leadership is grounded in the gospel (Gal 1:8-9). The gospel message is exemplified in the Apostle Paul; it is embodied in the gospel and entrusted to Titus. Paul calls himself a bond slave from birth. He is an Apostle and he proclaimed the message (Tit 1:1-3).
