Tit 1:1 Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the sake of the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth, which accords with godliness
We serve God according to the measure of our faith. That faith comes by hearing and hearing of the word of the Lord. Knowledge of God’s word fuels faith, it gives it life. In that faith we fulfil our public office according to the measure of our knowledge. Our faith driven by knowledge fulfills our work which accords with godliness, what truth is after. The disciples as in this verse referred to themselves as servants, servants serve, fulfilling the call or duty assigned to them.
We do not become elect by our faith, our faith confirms that we are elect, our works validate our faith that we are chosen of God, and brought as such to believe in Christ. Our worldview is shaped by the word of God, that is where we get our marching orders. From there on, we live out what we are within. The effectiveness of the word is not when it’s been received but when what has been received is applied and applied correctly. Truth drive us to servanthood.
