As we open to Titus 2:7, we return to the 21st Century Men of Grace Series we have been studying this past year.
As you turn back to that little New Testament epistle of Titus, here is a quick overview and back ground to this passage:
Titus was a companion in the ministry of Paul, one of two special young pastors that had been mentored and sent out by the Apostle Paul.
The letters or Epistles that Paul wrote to Timothy (who was serving the Church at Ephesus) and Titus (who was a missionary church planter to the Island of Crete) are collectively called the Pastoral Epistles and describe the specifics of how local New testament churches were to be led and taught.
Titus 2:1-8 contains a curriculum for every church that has 24 qualities God desires to see in His children.
Twelve of those qualities are specifically directed at women of all ages, which we have already studied through, one-by-one. These are God’s desires for 21st Century Women of Grace.
God has clearly communicated His desires in easy to understand terms. God wants 21st Century Women of Grace who follow His pathway to life-long usefulness. This desire of God was embraced by generation after generation of believers, which led to personal spiritual disciplines, focused priorities and deeply impacted lives.

God has clearly communicated in easy to understand terms His desires. God wants 21st Century Women of Grace who follow His pathway to life-long usefulness. This desire of God was embraced by generation after generation of believers: which led to personal spiritual disciplines, focused priorities and deeply impacting lives.
But in modern times, it seems we have lost that sense of urgency that earlier generations of Christ’s church all seemed to share.
Earlier generations of believers had a sense of urgency that is summed up by the final words of the Apostle Peter. Just before his execution for his faith, Peter wrote to the churches these sobering words: since everything is going to get dissolved, burn up, and destroyed, live for the One who makes all you do in His Name—last forever (II Peter 3:11).
