Gentle Persuasion (Part 2)

There is nothing more destructive than the tongue. In this episode of Moment of Truth, Pastor Matt continues his study of Titus 3 and the importance of gentle persuasion. We must guard our tongue and refuse to spread gossip and slander. If we are to live the good life that leads others to Christ, we cannot resort to quarreling and fighting. While we cannot conform to this world, we must learn to share the truth of Christ in love.

The art of Persuasion is studied by business leaders, politicians, and salesmen alike. Whether intentionally or not, we make an impression and an impact on others’ viewpoints all the time. Unfortunately for Christians, we often forget that our actions and words are the greatest tools we have to show others what it means to be a follower of Christ. We have a reputation of being judgmental and rebellious. In Titus 3, Pastor Matt explains that we are to be submissive to authority and to be a light to the world around us.

When was the last time you passed up the opportunity to share the gospel with someone? Discipleship and leading others to Christ is one of the core reasons for our existence!

God’s extreme grace should be extremely motivating! In today’s episode, Pastor Matt continues his sermon on four ways we should be motivated by grace.

People are always attracted to authenticity. The opposite is also true, people are repulsed by inconsistency. In order to live the good life and lead others to Christ, we have to be consistent in our Christian living. It means taking the time to disciple those younger and less mature than you. It means being disciplined and self-controlled. It means working hard for those in authority over us and modeling the good life for others. Today, Pastor Matt continues studying the first 10 verses of Titus chapter 2.
