One of the simplest ways to study the Bible is to see which words are repeated the most often.
In our Men’s & Women’s Bible Studies (Wednesday & Thursday mornings respectively) we are going through the book of TITUS.
Titus is a short book of the Bible. It is only 3 short chapters, only 46 verses total.
But in this brief letter written by the Apostle Paul to a younger fellow minister named Titus, the word Sound is used 5 times.
Titus 1:9“He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in SOUND doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.”
Titus 1:13 “This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be SOUND in the faith.”
Titus 2:1 “But as for you, teach what accords with SOUND doctrine.”
Titus 2:2 “Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, SOUND in faith, in love, and in steadfastness.”
Titus 2:8 “and SOUND speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.”
Being “Sound” means being “healthy.” It is as simple as that. Are you healthy in life? Are you healthy in your faith? Is your Faith a sound faith?
Studying the Bible this way is so simple yet so impactful. Try it out.
