1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;

4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,

5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.

7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;

10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Matthew Henry's Titus Chapter 2 Bible commentary...



The duties which become sound doctrine. (1-8) Believing servants must be obedient. (9,10) All is enforced from the holy design of the gospel, which concerns all believers. (11-15)1-8 Old disciples of Christ must behave in every thing agreeably to the Christian doctrine. That the aged men be sober; not thinking that the decays of nature will justify any excess; but seeking comfort from nearer communion with God, not from any undue indulgence. Faith works by, and must be seen in love, of God for himself, and of men for God's sake. Aged persons are apt to be peevish and fretful; therefore need to be on their guard. Though there is not express Scripture for every word, or look, yet there are general rules, according to which all must be ordered. Young women must be sober and discreet; for many expose themselves to fatal temptations by what at first might be only want of discretion. The reason is added, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. Failures in duties greatly reproach Christianity. Young men are apt to be eager and thoughtless, therefore must be earnestly called upon to be sober-minded: there are more young people ruined by pride than by any other sin. Every godly man's endeavour must be to stop the mouths of adversaries. Let thine own conscience answer for thine uprightness. What a glory is it for a Christian, when that mouth which would fain open itself against him, cannot find any evil in him to speak of!

9,10 Servants must know and do their duty to their earthly masters, with a reference to their heavenly one. In serving an earthly master according to Christ's will, He is served; such shall be rewarded by him. Not giving disrespectful or provoking language; but to take a check or reproof with silence, not making confident or bold replies. When conscious of a fault, to excuse or justify it, doubles it. Never putting to their own use that which is their master's, nor wasting the goods they are trusted with. Showing all good fidelity to improve a master's goods, and promote his thriving. If ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own? #Lu 16:12|. True religion is an honour to the professors of it; and they should adorn it in all things.

11-15 The doctrine of grace and salvation by the gospel, is for all ranks and conditions of men. It teaches to forsake sin; to have no more to do with it. An earthly, sensual conversation suits not a heavenly calling. It teaches to make conscience of that which is good. We must look to God in Christ, as the object of our hope and worship. A gospel conversation must be a godly conversation. See our duty in a very few words; denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, living soberly, righteously, and godly, notwithstanding all snares, temptations, corrupt examples, ill usage, and what remains of sin in the believer's heart, with all their hinderances. It teaches to look for the glories of another world. At, and in, the glorious appearing of Christ, the blessed hope of Christians will be complete: To bring us to holiness and happiness was the end of Christ's death. Jesus Christ, that great God and our Saviour, who saves not only as God, much less as Man alone; but as God-man, two natures in one person. He loved us, and gave himself for us; and what can we do less than love and give up ourselves to him! Redemption from sin and sanctification of the nature go together, and make a peculiar people unto God, free from guilt and condemnation, and purified by the Holy Spirit. All Scripture is profitable. Here is what will furnish for all parts of duty, and the right discharge of them. Let us inquire whether our whole dependence is placed upon that grace which saves the lost, pardons the guilty, and sanctifies the unclean. And the further we are removed from boasting of fancied good works, or trusting in them, so that we glory in Christ alone, the more zealous shall we be to abound in real good works.

Rev, Autrey's Titus Chapter 2 comment about verse 13 on 5/29/2014, 2:20pm...

Verse 13 "While we wait for the blessed hope the appearing of the glory of our Great God and Savior, Jesus Christ " This verse proved beyond all doubt that Jesus is the God who spoke to Moses and the prophets. Paul called him "our Great God and Savior, " proving that he is not a little God as many well meaning people claim. Just ask most people and they will say he is. Some go so far as to say he is a creation of God, or that he did not exist before God made him. Many say that when God spoke, his spoken word took on material substance and became a man. Some say that God had a son as a human man would have a son. But if this were so, Paul would not have called Jesus our Great God. What people do not understand is that in Psalm 2 Jesus proclaimed that when he was born on earth he would give himself the title "Son of God. " This was done to relate himself to both God and man. Also, it disproved the legitmacy of all the many pagan "sons of God. " To sum it us, then, the term "Son of God " for Jesus is just a poetic title. Jesus used many other title for himself, such as Son of Man, Bread of Life, Light of the World, etc. These titles also displayed elements of his character. But back to the point. If Paul called Jesus our Great God, that is what he is. The Father and the Holy Spirit are God 's other two personalities, but their jobs are different from Jesus '. Jesus is the way God speaks to us, and always will be. May God alays be with you!

 


Rev. Autrey's Titus Chapter 2 comment on 5/24/2014, 7:05pm...

Verse 13 "Looking forward to that wonderful time we 've been expecting, when his glory shall be seen, the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. " This verse calls Jesus both our great God and our Savior. This proves that God and Jesus are one and the same. It can be no other way. If we say it is not, then, we are saying there are two Gods, one we call God, and another we call Jesus. This is not a Christian doctrine. What we are talking about is self identity. You can have as many self identities or personalities as you like and still remain you. God has three self identities or personalities the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. But Jesus is always the personality through whom God speaks to us. That is why he says that he is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. This means that he is the way God speaks to us, and no one else is. That 's why he warns us against trying to bypass him and get to the Father. Such prayrs always remain unanswered. With God 's love!

This chapter tells us that the elders must be exanples to the younger generation.The elders must teach the younger generation the truth and the ways of the Lord.For the elders to do this they must keep themselves holy not do the things of this world.The marriage is sacred because when GOD joins a woman and a man together they become as one flesh.The elders must encourage the married couples to continue loving their spouses so that satan cannot break up their marriage.Loving your partner covers a multitude of sins by this i mean If you do not give love to your partner but you commit adultry with another person then you are sinning but if you love your partner you will not be tempted to commit adultry or sin against your partner and GOD.
