The Gospel of Titus and Letter to Philemon | rb-072214-titus-philemon
The Gospel of Titus along with the Letter to Philemon represents the early church and the ongoing faith and also the struggles they encounter. Here we find Paul in chains in Rome and along with the bonds, Paul bears fruit of those who come to the faith. They are Sons and Daughters in the faith.
It was from these bonds that the chief of the Apostles to the Gentiles wrote the flock of God throughout the Roman Empire. It was this flock, which now as the Apostle Paul was no more roaming free; that certain of the Jews who had sought to kill Paul or have him locked up now took the advantage to enter in and destroy the faith that he had preached.
We look at the “Ways of the faith in the early church” and how we can learn from them.
Php 1:12-18 KJV
12 But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;
13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;
14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:
16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.
18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
Php 4:22-23 KJV
22 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.
23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. To the Philippians written from Rome, by Epaphroditus.
