Text: Titus 2 (2 Chronicles 31-32)
But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. – Titus 2:1
In Titus 2 we find God’s plan for growing young Christians into mature ones. Older men are to teach the younger men while older women are to teach the younger women. I have a friend who describes how, when he was a sophomore in college, he came to faith through Campus Crusade for Christ. The staff man who led the ministry was about fifteen years older than my friend. This man spent literally eight hours a week for two years teaching my friend how a man of God lives for the Lord, loves the Lord and serves the Lord for His Kingdom. That sort of time is very well spent – but for most of us is our most scarce resource. Imagine with me the incredible fruit that could come were we to do this.
So, if you are a young man or woman, who is your mentor? If you are an older man or woman, into whom are you building? If you don’t have an answer, pray, pray some more, and get to work.
in Him, Mike
