Adorn the Doctrine of God

Adorn the Doctrine of God | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Titus 2:10, ESV

“…Not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.” (Titus 2:10 ESV)

True faith is having a personal relationship with God through the person of Jesus Christ. Christianity is not a list of dos and don’ts or just an intellectual belief in the tenets of the Christian faith. We have been born again to a living hope, a relationship with the risen Savior who literally lives in and through the life of believers.

That being the case, Scripture exhorts us to be good examples of what we proclaim: “Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel” (Philippians 1:27 ESV).

If we are to be effective, our daily conduct cannot contradict what we say we believe in.

Saved to Do Good Works

Saved to Do Good Works | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Titus 2:14, NKJV

Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.” (Titus 2:14 NKJV)

Among other things, we have been saved to do good works.

Let’s be clear about this: good works do not save us, and we are not saved by the good works we do.

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” (Titus 3:5–7 NKJV)

Expressing Gratitude and Praise

Expressing Gratitude and Praise | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Psalm 50:23, NKJV

Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; and to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God.” (Psalm 50:23 NKJV)

Do you like it when people express gratitude to you and perhaps even praise you for something you have done? It strengthens your relationship with that person.

Fix Your Eyes on Christ

Fix Your Eyes on Christ | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Hebrews 12:2, NIV

Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2 NIV)

Most of us have issues to face while we are living in this world. Problems, challenges, and changing circumstances just go with the territory. One of the most difficult lessons to learn for us as believers is to fix our eyes on Jesus Christ instead of only focusing on the problems facing us.

Glory Belongs to God

Glory Belongs to God | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Psalm 44:3, NKJV

For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them.” (Psalm 44:3 NKJV)

From a human perspective it is difficult for us to understand that God is the source of all life. Why? Because the world elevates many self-made individuals. Many of these people bask in the glory that is given to them by the world.

Relationship: The Key Component to a Fruitful Life

Relationship: The Key Component to a Fruitful Life | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Romans 6:11, NLT

So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.” (Romans 6:11, NLT)

This is an incredible statement to be making to the believer in Jesus Christ. By his sacrifice Jesus Christ has made us dead to the power of sin.

We see this reality take place in our life when, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we put to death the misdeeds of the body. Sure, the old nature lurks around, always trying to re-assert itself (which it does, if the Spirit is not in control of us).

What a Savior!

What a Savior! | KingdomNomics.comScripture: John 1:29, NIV

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!’” (John 1:29, NIV)

I never get tired of hearing God’s wonderful plan of salvation. It is truly all a work of God. The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, takes away the sin of the world. That includes my sin and your sin. He does it without our works, behavior, or anything else:

For it is not possible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.” (Hebrews 10:4, NLT)

We are told, “My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous. He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.” (1 John 2:1–2, NLT)

God’s Word is Food for the Soul

God’s Word is Food for the Soul | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Matthew 4:4, NIV

Jesus answered, ‘It is written: “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’ (Matthew 4:4, NIV)

There you have it. If we are going to experience a true spiritual life renewal, we need to know and receive the Word of God, “but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” (2 Timothy 1:10, NKJV)

Without God’s Word we are weak, ignorant vessels, losing our way in this complex world system dedicated to keep us from discovering and living the truth.

We Have Work to Do

We Have Work to Do | KingdomNomics.comScripture: John 17:3–4, NIV

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.” (John 17:3–4, NIV)

This is eternal life: knowing God and Jesus Christ.

Jesus came into the world to give the world this message. Without him, there is no hope of personal salvation. Those who accept this truth will enjoy a life that will echo into eternity.

The Power to Love is Sourced in the Holy Spirit

The Power to Love is Sourced in the Holy Spirit | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Romans 5:5, NIV

“…And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” (Romans 5:5, NIV)

It is only through God’s power that we can love others in the way he desires. This is confirmed by this verse:

“…For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” (2 Timothy 1:7, ESV)
