True Woman Make-Over Day 17

Applying Sound Doctrine

For the final ten days of our make-over, we’ll journey with Nancy Leigh DeMoss through her teaching on Titus 2:1-5 titled “God’s Beautiful Design for Women.” We highly recommend the entire series.

Have you ever assumed that doctrine is for scholars who like to pore over ancient texts in big libraries? Actually, solid doctrine isn’t meant to stay in books—it’s supposed to be used in the day-to-day decisions you and I make.

  • Just because we pick an idea up in a Christian bookstore; or hear it on Christian radio, television, or in a church, doesn't mean we can assume it is sound doctrine.
  • Doctrine—what we believe—determines how we live. And the way we live reveals what we believe. Doctrine and life have to match each other.
  • We know so much. If we’d just live a fraction of what we know, we’d be spiritual giants instead of spiritual pygmies.
