Menu Navigation Problem

Dear Enduring Word User: Right now (5:00pm Pacific Time on November 13), we’re having a problem with menu navigation on our website. Apparently this has been a problem for most of this afternoon – perhaps before. This only seems to be a problem for desktop computer users, not mobile or tablet users. On most of […]

Sunday Recovery

And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?” (Mark 5:30) Recently a pastor friend asked me what I did to recover from the Sunday-afternoon blues, the kind of thing that comes from the physical, emotional, and spiritual energy spent […]

Remember to Reject

Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition, knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned. (Titus 3:10-11) In this section of Titus 3, Paul told Titus to remember several things. Here he told him to remember to reject a divisive man. Divisive people are not a new problem for the church. […]

Denke an die Dinge, die wichtig sind

Die törichten Streitfragen aber und Geschlechtsregister, sowie Zwistigkeiten und Auseinandersetzungen über das Gesetz meide; denn sie sind unnütz und nichtig. (Titus 3,9) In diesem Abschnitt von Paulus` Brief an Titus erinnerte er seinen jungen Mitarbeiter an verschiedene Dinge. Mit diesen Worten erinnerte er Titus daran, sich auf die Dinge zu konzentrieren, die wichtig sind, damit […]

Remember Things that Matter

But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless. (Titus 3:9) In this portion of Paul’s letter to Titus, he reminded his younger co-worker of several different things. With these words, he reminded Titus to focus on the things that matter, to not get distracted with foolish disputes and […]

Erinnere dich an gute Werke

Glaubwürdig ist das Wort, und ich will, dass du dies mit allem Nachdruck bekräftigst, damit die, welche an Gott gläubig wurden, darauf bedacht sind, eifrig gute Werke zu tun. Dies ist gut und nützlich für die Menschen. (Titus 3,8) Einige Menschen behaupten, die Bibel widerspreche sich selbst. Die meisten dieser Behauptungen sind ziemlich absurd und […]

Ready to Run

Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.” Habakkuk 2:2 Every Bible preacher or teacher wants to be effective. We might have different opinions about what true effectiveness is, but we all want to see God accomplish something in and […]

Remember Good Works

This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men. (Titus 3:8) Some people like to claim that the Bible contradicts itself. Most of these claims are fairly silly, and […]

Erinnere dich an Seine großartige Errettung

Als aber die Freundlichkeit und Menschenliebe Gottes, unseres Retters, erschien, da hat er uns – nicht um der Werke willen, die wir getan hätten, sondern aufgrund seiner Barmherzigkeit – errettet durch das Bad der Wiedergeburt und durch die Erneuerung des Heiligen Geistes. (Titus 3,4-5) Die ersten beiden Worte in Titus 3 sind „erinnere sie“, und […]

Remember His Great Salvation

But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:4-5) The first two words of Titus 3 are, “remind them,” and I […]
