Titus Chapter 3

New Testament / Epistle to Titus / Chapter 3

1-7 Remind them to be subject to principalities and powers, obey magistrates, be ready for every good work, speak evil of no man, be peaceable, gentle, and demonstrate all meekness all men. For we ourselves also were once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another. But after that, the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy, he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost, who he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by his grace we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to constantly affirm, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men.

9-11 But avoid foolish questions, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. Reject a man who is a heretic after the first and second admonition, knowing that such a person is corrupt and sinning, condemning himself.

12-14 When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, be diligent to come to me in Nicopolis, for I have decided to winter there. Send Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey with haste, that they lack nothing. And let our brethren also learn to maintain good works, to meet urgent needs, so they may not be unfruitful.

15 All that are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace, be with you all. Amen.
