    To MPHATSO - the 'more' you need is - ACTS 2:37-38. If you need more than this - then you're out of luck.
    Acts chapter 2 is where the of Jesus Christ began; chapter 2 is the very 1st message preached in the church. All the books hat follow are to ALREADY established churches; they are instructions on what GOD (not man) expects of His people. There is an ORDER to God's word; it's not hit or miss.

    Yes we should have works in our lives as Christians,but we must be careful that our works are the result of the fruit of the Holy Spirit and not based on human effort. All of the striving in the world does not impress God.A Christian artist once wrote,"striving for perfection when the only perfect thing I had was weakness" Think about it! He is the source of fruit and Christian works! Trust Him!

    Verse 3:3, Wonderful and Remarkable.....
  • Erich Brunner for verse 8
    As followers of Christ, we are led to do good works by way of what is in our hearts. What Paul is saying to Titus is that one who is filled with the Holy Spirit will resist temptation and strive to be loving and helping to others. Believers will want to promote cherity and good will towards others, as this is what God wants believers to do. Paul also states that "These things are good and profitable unto men", meaning that our good works will show others that we are not hypocrites who claim to be Christian, but, continue to live in sin. However, this is not to say that one must complete good works to earn salvation. What this passage, along with many others in the New Testament, is stating is that there is value in good works when leading a Christian life that can not be denied. James ch.2 is another good book to read in the Bible in reference to the value of good works as a Christian.
