God has a purpose for this world that he designed before time began. God called Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob into that plan and gave them promises to hold onto as they took steps of faith in active obedience. We also fit into God’s purpose as we walk by faith to wherever he takes us.

The Psalms of Ascent (Ps 120-134) offer us help on the journey of our lives as we walk with God through the good times and bad. These psalms help us approach God in worship via avenues of lament, thanksgiving, praise, and celebration. They lead us into worship on the journey: bringing who we are (transparency) to who God is (confidence) together with God’s people (community).  

In Titus, we find the fundamentals of a healthy church. God is clear that the church must have biblical leadership, a growing understanding of God’s Word, and a pursuit of godly living.
