He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.

– Titus 1:9 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Paul’s letter to Titus reminds us that doctrine is important. To think that we don’t need doctrine or that doctrine is a hindrance to true spirituality is to misunderstand the role of doctrine. When held to firmly, sound doctrine places courage in our souls to live in harmony with God, protects us from strange teachings, and identifies those who want to misuse Biblical teachings for their own purposes.
