    Slave Traits - Titus 1:1-4

    Originally preached on January 2012

    The very concept of slavery conjures up images of cruelty, indignity, and repression. For that reason, English translations unanimously softened the word doulos to "servant" instead of "slave."  But servants are hired . . . slaves are owned.  For centuries the Church has lost a key principle of our relationship to God, and it’s time to translate the word correctly and apply it biblically.  We don’t work for contract wages, and there's no negotiating for benefit packages with God.So buckle up—from the opening lines of Paul’s letter to Titus to the closing verse, nothing is lost in translation! Stephen expounds on the unique traits every Christian’s attitude and spirit should exemplify as willing slaves of God.
