“Titus 2 Tea Time with Cassandra”

Thank you for joining me for Titus 2 tea time. Many married couples desire to walk according to God’s Word but do not know how to respond in a biblical manner when they are in the midst of disagreements and.conflicts with their spouses. The following tea time question is a concern shared by many husbands and wives.
Q: How does a wife respect her husband if he treats her disrespectfully? And how does a husband respond to his wife with consideration that she is a “weaker vessel” if she is treating him disrespectfully?
A: This is the way that God wants us to respond and conduct ourselves as described in 1 Peter 3:8-20, Message:
” Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing.
Whoever wants to embrace life
    and see the day fill up with good,
Here’s what you do:
    Say nothing evil or hurtful;
Snub evil and cultivate good;
    run after peace for all you’re worth.
God looks on all this with approval,
    listening and responding well to what he’s asked;
But he turns his back
    on those who do evil things.
13-18 If with heart and soul you’re doing good, do you think you can be stopped? Even if you suffer for it, you’re still better off. Don’t give the opposition a second thought. Through thick and thin, keep your hearts at attention, in adoration before Christ, your Master. Be ready to speak up and tell anyone who asks why you’re living the way you are, and always with the utmost courtesy. Keep a clear conscience before God so that when people throw mud at you, none of it will stick. They’ll end up realizing that “they’re” the ones who need a bath. It’s better to suffer for doing good, if that’s what God wants, than to be punished for doing bad. That’s what Christ did definitively: suffered because of others’ sins, the Righteous One for the unrighteous ones. He went through it all—was put to death and then made alive—to bring us to God.
19-22 He went and proclaimed God’s salvation to earlier generations who ended up in the prison of judgment because they wouldn’t listen. You know, even though God waited patiently all the days that Noah built his ship, only a few were saved then, eight to be exact—saved “from” the water “by” the water. The waters of baptism do that for you, not by washing away dirt from your skin but by presenting you through Jesus’ resurrection before God with a clear conscience. Jesus has the last word on everything and everyone, from angels to armies. He’s standing right alongside God, and what he says goes.”
Amen, what the Lord says goes! When we desire to live by His truths and experience His blessing of peace in our marriages, we must look to His Word and seek His help in applying it in our conduct.
May the Lord bless your marriage with His joy! :+) Until next tea time…
Be blessed~
