To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed. Titus 1:15-16
In his instructions to Titus about the kind of leaders that should be appointed to the churches in Crete, Paul differentiates between two kind of people. One is true servant of God, the other is a rebellious person who promotes divisive doctrines. Reminding Titus of the freedom found in Christ, he says “to the pure, all things are pure”. This is to combat the Judaizers who wanted believers subjected to circumcision and other Jewish rituals. Titus was to have none of it.
In my leading and example, am I demonstrating freedom in Christ? Is there any area that I am wittingly or unwittingly subjecting anyone to unnecessary burdens in their relationship to God?
Lord, I feel that what Paul wrote is true in my life. All things are pure. Help me remain sensitive and never compromise with worldliness. Thank you for the freedom that comes by Your Spirit leading and guiding and the precepts of scripture.
