Tim Chester ä 0 Review Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ä Tim Chester Characters Titus for You Ive out the truth in your lifeFEED As a daily devotional to help you grow in Christ as you read and meditate on this portion of God's wordLEAD As notes to aid you in explaining illustrating and applying Titus as you preach or lead a Bible studyWhoever you are and however you use it this is Titus For You. INTRODUCTIONTheological debates occur within Christianity sadly some miss the main point biblical authors were really communicating For example the book of Titus is often remembered for the checklist of ualifications concerning elders yet there is to the book than this one topic Author Tim Chester of Sheffield England does a great job in Titus For You of summarizing Paul s intent for the entire epistle Basically Chester believes Paul wrote this letter to Titus his younger son in the Christian faith 14 by saying His goal was not converts but disciples For any ministry we are involved inthat should be our goal too Chester explains his thesis by exegetically explaining this epistle verse by verse which includes topics such as the Gospel discipleship character God s grace and His gloryTHE GOSPEL IS THE CORNERSTONE OF DISCIPLESHIPFirst Chester s summary of Titus may be discipleship He realizes that Paul s letter begins by emphasizing the Gospel 11 3 Only the Gospel can bring those to whom God has chosen to saving faith because one cannot rescue oneself which feeds into holistic discipleship In other words the Gospel must be lived out in each believer s life and not just received as a one time moment of salvation In chapter three in the book of Titus 34 7 Chester explains the difference between God s grace and His glory He starts by showing how Paul emphasized correct Gospel application in both belief and in culture As a result one lives a purposeful life because one s motivation for living is founded in the Gospel s redemptive application in not just their past but also in their present and futureGOSPEL BASED DISCIPLESHIP INCLUDES CHARACTERSince Chester believes that Paul s goal was not converts but disciples he believes one will show a life that makes the God our Savior attractive because they are Christians of deep character They are not simply individuals with a knowledge based form of discipleship Rather believers will display a joy from their Christianity that will attract others towards a deeper form of discipleship Again this is the result of the right Gospel belief with the right Gospel culture It is a character driven discipleship that is a lifestyle of everyday Christianity than a compartmentalized faith that is barely usedMore specifically Titus For You says that Paul defined character to Titus as a disciple who makes disciples Notice that Chester does not engage the theological divisive debate on concerning divorced men being elders or deacons in chapter one Instead his exegetical focus is on one s internal character which coincides with Chester s interpretation of chapter three in the book of Titus which encourages one to avoid controversies by focusing on the Gospel Debates can be a waste of energy so one s focus should be on the clear steps of discipleship that will lead to the development of one s internal characterAlso Chester states that Titus displays the importance of an older person in the faith mentoring a younger person in the faith In fact this is exactly what Paul is doing with Titus 14 5 As one read s through both Titus and Titus For You it is clear to see that Paul is not engaging Titus in a process of self discovery common to some forms of growth Rather Paul is directing Titus with clear expectations of how a Christian should live 215 Therefore Paul is not just telling Titus about the importance of mentorship he is living it out in their relationship 15CHARACTER IS FOUNDED BY GRACE SUSTAINED BY GOD S GLORYNow that the relationship between character and discipleship has been shown in Titus it is important to focus on one final profound truth Chester writes in Titus For You We are pushed from behind by the wonder of grace and we are pulled forward by the hope of glory He claims that Paul s point in the third chapter of Titus is that grace justifies us before God in salvation but also a Christian should continue on in sanctification towards God s glory 34 7 Basically the Gospel saves us and it transforms us till death or until Christ s glorious appearing where there will be a new heaven and earth As Chester writes Grace also shapes our lives in the present The gospel is good news for the last day But it is also good news for the next day This is a beautiful truth he pulls from the book of Titus without adhering to any one eschatological theology Instead he simply states We live between two appearing s The first was by grace when Christ appeared incarnate as both man and God which is past tense The other is future tense when Christ returns in full glory and splendor to redeem not just humanity but His creation Therefore since He appeared by grace His future appearing should develop within us a grateful character of hope for one s Christian life and not a threat of His future judgmentCONCLUSIONThe Gospel impacts discipleship which develops one s internal character and then character is inspired by God s future glory These are some of the encouragements found in the book Titus For You which is the first entry in The Good Book Company s God s Word For You series that is not written by Tim Keller Rather author Tim Chester does a great job of maintaining the uality associated with the series The only complaint about Titus For You is that Chester seems to repeat himself when biblically explaining the latter half of chapter one and the first half of chapter two Despite this one drawback Titus For You is a readable short commentary similar to previous books in the God s Word For You series that are recommended This is because the well trained pastor will find deep insights while the average layperson will find the commentary accessible Both groups can use Titus For You as a devotional by slowly meditating on the books content with the uestions asked at the end of each chapter By reflecting on the message found in the epistle Titus and the book Titus For You can teach anyone that the grace of the Gospel is not only affirming for one s salvation but character forming for one s transformation As a result a Christian should choose to be a disciple of Christ in both right doctrine and a godly character that is neither antinomian nor legalistic but Gospel centered and guided
