Wednesday, July 4th: Isaiah 1-3, Titus 1 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Isaiah 1-3, Titus 1 

I memorized the book of Titus several years ago.  I can't say it from memory anymore, but it comes back very easily as I read through it.  When I memorized it, I was going through a book by Janet Pope about bible memory, and she made comments about the verses as we went along (following, in blue).  I won't mention them all, but it's amazing how much is in every verse if you actually stop and think about it.

Titus 1:1 Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness

Who? Paul.
How does he describe himself? A servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ.
Why is he writing? For the faith of God's elect and the knowledge of the truth.
Where does the knowledge of the truth lead? It leads to godliness.
Is this what you want? Yes.
Then go after truth. That's why we're doing this. There is so much in this one verse. Think about it. Pray about it. Let it come alive in you.

in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time,
Ask questions: Who, what, where, when, why and how.
Where is my faith resting? On the hope of eternal life.
Who promised this? God
When? Before the beginning of time.
What attribute of God is mentioned? He does not lie.
Wow! How sure is your faith? As sure as God Himself.

And that's just two verses!
