Are You Foolish, Disobedient and Deceived?

Titus 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, [and] hating {comparing} one another.

Today’s message is from the letter written by Paul to Titus and has Paul describing a person who

Lives serving various lusts and pleasures,

Living in malice and envy,


Comparing one person to another.

As foolish, disobedient and under deceit.

If we introspect our lives and ask ourselves

Are the pleasures of this world important to us? Can I do without these worldly things or services of this world, or lifestyle?

Do I think of hurting people if not physically by action, at least emotionally by my harsh word?

Do I desire to remove people out of my live, harm their existence in society or their relationship with others?

Do I hate people so much that I cannot forgive them? Even though I may have told them I forgive them but my thoughts keep reminding me of the injustice or hurts they did towards me.

Do I go about comparing a person to another, not acknowledging the uniqueness of that person?

If we are doing any of these then the Lord says we have some level of foolishness, disobedience and deception in us. We as Christians are ‘work in process’ and we need to improve daily to be like Christ.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Almighty God. You Lord are Holy, Perfect in every way and no darkness exist in You. Lord You have call us to be perfect like You are, so help us Lord to be aware of those areas of foolishness, disobedience and deception, help us through your Spirit to overcome these areas so that we become more and more Israel – Sons of God…

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Romans 3:9-18

9 What then? are we better [than they]? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

13 Their throat [is] an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps [is] under their lips:

14 Whose mouth [is] full of cursing and bitterness:

15 Their feet [are] swift to shed blood:

16 Destruction and misery [are] in their ways:

17 And the way of peace have they not known:

18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.
