Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Titus 1:7
St. Paul is laying out expectations on those who are pastors. On the one hand, these qualifications for the job disqualify me. They disqualify us all because no one can fully live up to those standards. But then I remember God’s grace and realize it is that grace which has redefined me. God has made me holy. Telling of his life-changing grace is my message.
BUT how I live does impact how others hear the message. I am not perfect, but I will strive to honor God in every aspect of my life—I don’t want you to miss out on heaven because my lifestyle kept you from hearing the gospel. All of us Christians live in glass houses. Let’s use that so people can see the God who is Lord in our homes and our lives!
