Thanks to John Martin for his wonderful ministry among us in so many, many ways. Many of you might not know but John writes original music for every television broadcast for Grace To You. It's a tremendous, tremendous blessing and if you haven't been able to watch, you need to do that without staying home from church on Sunday morning. We're on at 9:30 in the morning if you can figure out a way to get a recording of it. We're having a wonderful response to the television program. More than that, we're proclaiming the Word of God through the medium of television in a way that's very unusual and telling stories of transformed lives along with it. It's just been a great opportunity the Lord has granted to us. We're thankful for everybody around here. Tom Patton, you sometimes see him around, he's been the announcer on the program and they're shooting him here and there on the campus on Sunday. And John does the music. It's just a wonderful, wonderful blessing.
My son-in-law, Kory Welch, is even as we speak in Mexico City because we're going to feature in one of our programs upcoming Josiah Groman(?) and his testimony. As you know, he's a missionary down there in Mexico City. He was with us a couple of Sunday nights ago. And so, these are the stories that we want to tie into the program to show how the Word works in people's lives in very dramatic ways.
I want you to open your Bible, for a moment, to a text of Scripture that we're going to look at. It's a very brief one. In fact, I'm just going to read you two verses in the little epistle of Paul to Titus...Titus, a very brief but a very important epistle. And perhaps among the several things that stand out about this epistle is one in particular that is very striking for its brevity and its clarity....
