Some Thoughts from Titus 

  I read Titus this morning. A few things that stood out. 

1. I love how Paul calls Titus a true son in the faith. What a great reminder of the family of God and what our goal as disciple makers should be. To build the family and cultivate true disciples.

2. Stop fighting over meaningless controversies. Man, I could have used this as a Core Group leader…lol. Too many times I got caught in what I believed to be an academic exercise when it was just meaningless dribble. I wasn’t trying  to understand anything better, I was just trying to sound smart or be part of a certain crowd. Meaningless. 

3. Yes, Jesus coming back is our blessed hope, a truth I should long for more often than I do. 

Amen, come quickly Lord Jesus.

This got me thinking as to what I should do next…

And I realized there’s only one primary answer to that.

What Bible Translation Should I Read?

Ahh yes. The age old question of which Bible translation one should read. Much blood  ink has been spilled trying to decide this question. Maybe you’ve been wondering it yourself.

After all, there are a lot of different translations out there with a lot of different letters attached to them. Dynamic equivalents and word for word. Translated from the Greek and translated from the Latin. In the original Greek and Hebrew. Words of Christ in red or one without paragraph headings.

In can all be a little bit overwhelming.

So, let me give you the answer as to which one to get.

The answer is really quite simple.
