    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.

    Titus lets me know that I was apart of a world that spoke evil of all men whether saved or unsaved, where people brawl against one another did foolish things, served as diver lust and pleasures for men, people lived in malice and envy being hateful and hating one another, but when they accepted the Lord as their savior according to his grace and mercy they were washed and regenerated and renewed of the holy Ghost, they began to take on the spirit of meekness and gentleness toward all men and walk in obedience of the word of God. They had to take off the old man and walk in the newness of Christ. Being justified by grace we are heirs according to the hope of eternal life. We are to maintain good works unto all men, works that can be justified as fruitful until Christ himself return to rapture us.

    The kindness and love of the Father our Savior appeared to all people and appeared to us. It 's not through our own work of righteousness, but according to His mercy He saved us. With washing Spiritual cleansing to cause a complete moral reformation in us, and to renew us in the Holy Spirit. And to strongly built us through Jesus Christ our Savior. We are justified by his grace, and made heirs to the hope of eternal life. Believers must be careful to continue in good works. These things are good and profit all people. As God 's people we are to be ready to every good work, submissive, tame, patient, and humble. Running the race to the end.
  • Titi
    verse two says speaks evil of no man whether those in the govt that are not performing well or the boss that is like pharaoh or the friend, brethen or church leaders that have disappointed us. and also says we should show meekness unto all men even our employees, officers that are lower in rank, our children or dependants- all men even if they are unbelievers while we remain pure in the will of GOD. Ipray that the sanctifying power in the blood of Jesus enable us to obey HIS word with all meekness, purity and gladness of heart. It takes only HIS grace .
