In this short sermon, we are going to look at the meaning of Titus 1 verse 16 which says: They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.
What is the meaning of Titus 1 Verse 16?
Titus 1 verse 16 makes reference to Adam and Eve who saw the blessedness and glory of God but yet disobeyed Him.
it is possible to use the forbidden fruit eaten by our first parents to allegorically explain any manner of sin.
For example, in fornication, it can be explained that Eve allowed the serpent to make love to her and afterward gave her privacy to Adam, who also made love to her.
In pride, it can be explained that Adam and Eve wanted to show God that they too can be like Him
For greed, it can be explained that they wanted to forcefully take what God did not want to give to them.
And in stealing it can be explained that the serpent deceived them to steal from their creator who had earlier warned them not to touch it.
And so on and so forth.
So whenever you commit any kind of sin to keep in mind that you have eaten the forbidden fruit offered to you by the devil and like our first parents you have denied God and worshipped the devil and as such have fallen from the grace of God.
But thank God now because we have someone who pleads on our behalf whenever we fall as the scripture shows us:
My little children, these things I write to you, that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.(1 John 2:1-2).
