The Spirit of Truth.

Series: Dirt | Week 3: Half-Hearted

Day Four Titus 3:3-8

3 ”Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient. We were misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy, and we hated each other. 4 But—When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, 5 he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. 6 He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. 7 Because of his grace he made us right in his sight and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life. 8 This is a trustworthy saying, and I want you to insist on these teachings so that all who trust in God will devote themselves to doing good. These teachings are good and beneficial for everyone.” Titus 3:3-8 (NLT)

1. Referring to verse 3, how have you been misled in this world?
2. What does it mean to you when Titus says that the Spirit was poured out onto us through Jesus?
3. What teachings of Jesus keep you focused on the truth?

Take a few minutes and reflect on verses 4-7. Read each of those statements carefully, and ask God to remind you that His truth is bigger than our failures. Ask the Spirit to guide you into the truth and away from the way the world can mislead you.

For Families with Kids at Home
Tonight at dinnertime or bedtime, remind your kids that Jesus loves them no matter what they do or don’t do. His love is not conditional based on their behavior, and remind them that your love is unconditional, too.
