Good morning!

Text:  Titus; Isaiah 10
One of the delights of daily Bible reading is that sometimes a verse or a phrase speaks fresh truth into our lives.  In today’s reading, these words, written to Titus for slaves, spoke to me:

…so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.  (Titus 2:10)

What a thought!  In our lives, even in the meanest of circumstances, we are always to “adorn” the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We are to make the truth of Jesus – who He is, how much He loves us, His sacrifice and His resurrection power – we are to make that truth beautiful.  Like ornaments on a Christmas tree we are to make the Good News sparkle and glisten.  Like jewels worn by a bride we are to draw attention to our Lord Jesus.  “In everything”, it says.  It seems to me that this would be a good subject for prayer at the start of each day.
in Him, Mike
