Firmly Rooted Leadership

Titus 1:5-9

Pastor Paul Briggs

April 15, 2018

In his gracious and merciful providence, God has designed for there to be order in his church through recognized leaders. These leaders are to have specific life-qualities. The elder is to have his house in order. His life is to be further characterized by qualities of life which reflect a sound understanding and practice of the Gospel. These things must be in place so that he can carry out the function of a biblical leader. There is great benefit for the church member who, in obedience to God, lives under the leadership of those he has raised up to lead, feed and protect his church.

In Titus, we find the fundamentals of a healthy church. God is clear that the church must have biblical leadership, a growing understanding of God’s Word, and a pursuit of godly living. 

God is sovereign in his love and care for us as his people. He is for us in our circumstances, in the midst of judgment, and in his love. His primary good for us is in making us more like his Son.

There is one main character in the book of Exodus. It's not Moses, Aaron, Pharaoh, or the golden calf. It's the God who makes his greatness known time and time again in the rescue of his people.
