Adorning the Doctrine

In Titus 2:10 Paul told Titus that servants are to adorn the doctrine of God.

To adorn means, "to arrange, to put in order," (W. E. Vines, NIV, Titus 2:10) so that in every way the servant or teacher will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive. Therefore, the servant or teacher must conduct himself in such a way that his message will be acceptable and attractive.

Paul told Timothy to "Take heed unto thyself and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee" (I Timothy 4:16).

Personality traits of the successful teacher:

If you follow these instructions, then it can be said of you, "How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things" (Romans 10:15).

Let us adorn the doctrine of God by the life we live.
