Scripture Reading: Titus 2:11-14
We live in the present, but we look to the future. There is nothing wrong with that. We, as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, look for His appearing when we shall be caught up together to meet the Lord in the clouds of heaven . When Paul wrote to Pastor Titus he called his attention to the "blessed hope and glorious appearing" of our only Lord and Savior. At the present time, things are not going well in our country. Many Americans are no longer ashamed of immorality or concerned about the disintegration of home and family or the increase of crime of every description. Our government is bewildered by problems for which it seemingly has no solutions. Saddest of all is the decline of the church in America. Instead of sound expository Bible doctrine, we hear more and more a philosophy of Christianity and religion. This should not really surprise us. Paul told Timothy in II Timothy 3 that in the last days "perilous times shall come." The list that follows can hardly be a description of the ungodly world. The world has had all these unfavorable features since Adam and Eve began having children. Verses 2-7 are describing the decrease of godliness within the professing church.
The preaching of the Word of God, rightly divided, with a strong emphasis on Pauline dispensational theology is accepted by very few Christians. Sin is becoming more acceptable and tolerated. As a new year begins, and as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, let us make it our resolve to follow the admonition of Romans 12:1-2--namely our reasonable service, unconformed to this godless world system, daily renewing our minds through the Scriptures, making every effort to please the Lord who bought us. If we follow Paul and "continue thou in the things thou hast learned," we will not go astray doctrinally.
