As leadership transitions from one generation to the next, the central truths of the Gospel must remain at the very heart of the church’s work. Nearing the end of his life, Paul wrote to embolden the pastor Titus to teach sound doctrine, to confront false teaching, and to establish organized leadership according to Scripture. In this study of the book of Titus, we see the radical implications of God’s design for His people.
In volume one of this series, Alistair Begg examines the theological basis for Paul’s practical instructions. Knowing who God is and what He has done for us in the Lord Jesus provides both the foundation for our faith and the hope and motivation for our good deeds. As we consider Paul’s guidelines for choosing elders and teaching older men and women, we find that those who “get it right” adorn the Gospel by distinctive, godly living.
