Dr. Rolando Aguirre: Goodness: Grace to the Core/Bondad: Gracia en Esencia (Titus 3:1-9/Tito 3:1-9)

Dr. Rolando Aguirre, associate pastor of teaching and Spanish language ministries at Park Cities Baptist Church in Dallas, used an apple to illustrate that the spiritual fruit of goodness is meant to be thorough—all the way to the core. Titus was a church planter on the Greek island of Crete, and Paul’s letter to him begins with reminders of what goodness is not.

Goodness is part of God’s purpose for us. When we are foolish and unaware of our identity, we are led astray and misbehave. Such lack of goodness leaves us unable to fulfill God’s purpose for us, but God transforms us in Jesus Christ and makes us good.



This sermon was delivered online on Oct. 25, 2020, for morning worship services of Park Cities Baptist Church in Dallas. It is part of the series titled “The Fruit of the Spirit: Calling Cards of Faith.” The English sermon video can be viewed here.

El Dr. Rolando Aguirre, pastor asociado de enseñanza y ministerios en español en la Iglesia Bautista Park Cities en Dallas, usó una manzana para ilustrar que el fruto espiritual de la bondad debe ser exhaustivo, hasta la médula. Tito fue un plantador de iglesias en la isla griega de Creta, y la carta de Pablo comienza con recordatorios de lo que la bondad no es.



La bondad es parte del propósito de Dios para nosotros. Cuando somos imprudentes y no somos conscientes de nuestra identidad, nos descarriamos y nos portamos mal. Tal falta de bondad nos deja incapaces de cumplir el propósito de Dios para nosotros, pero Dios nos transforma en Jesucristo y nos hace buenos.

Este sermón se pronunció en línea el 25 de octubre de 2020 para los servicios de adoración matutinos de la Iglesia Bautista Park Cities en Dallas. Es parte de la serie titulada “El fruto del Espíritu: Tarjetas de presentación de la fe.” El video del sermón en español se puede ver aquí.
