    for verse 8: good works profitable for men women...that they may see your good works and glorify your father who is in heaven Matthew 5, these are the things to strive for and go a long way to showing the world the Love of God at work in you. Unlike the "works" in verse 5!

    Verse 3~Many are being led as slaves to their own desires. It is important to cultivate self-control and not become a slave to our sinful desires.
  • Eutychus
    Note how in Titus, God our Savior, and Jesus our Savior are spoken of almost interchangeably. This may be true somewhat of other books or letters, but it stands out here in a very obvious manner.

    I love reading Titus. God bless you all.

    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.
  • Mark B
    Amen Irene. Acts 2:38-39 is the New Testament salvation as we follow the teaching of Jesus. Always with love.

    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!

    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.

    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 .
  • JP
    Just love v.3, how St. Paul doesn 't single anyone out but instead makes the Church the example! Amen!

    I love to read all of the bible verses and answer the bible trivia at the end of each one.
  • Thus shows how we want to be reasonable and display mildness toward everyone. We want to strive to be gentle when dealing with others, be willing to listen to others.
  • JOHN S for verse 10
    It relates to me abusive relatives in many instances. If someone in your family is being difficult, wont listen, try to gain them as a friend... If they cant, then flush them out of your life.
  • Jenny for verse 10
    That stuborn man and woman who have refuse to comply with the doctrine of truth as practice by God 's children in a congregation, after the first and second warning and they refuse to change, rather than polluting others 1Cor 5:6 they should be rejected and cast out. My idea
  • Sam Thomas, Toronto
    Chapter 3 5 "He Saved Us " what an adoring thought it is. Ruined sinners to reclaim Hallelujah what a Saviour. Sealed my pardon with His Blood.... Full atonement can it be ..Hallelujah what a saviour.... "He saved us "
  • William Fulghum for verse 10
    I think that if you preach the word from the Bible you are doing your part you were just giving them a choice of studying themselves and research and I don 't think you are dividing the congregation up.
  • Abel Syubramony
    Chapter 3 tells us that we were once lost to this world and when we accepted JESUS CHRIST we were saved by his blood and his grace.When we see other people that are sinning we must not talk bad about them realising that we was in the same situation in our own lives.we must rather pray for them and tell them the love of GOD and tell them what GOD has done for you.When we were sinners we did not know the love of CHRIST but after we was washed in the blood we know the love of CHRIST and the old life that you used to lead are know dead and you become a new creation.
  • F.r. Stansell
    There are doctrines of devils, man need to repent to be excepted by the Holy Ghost into the body of Christ . The friction comes only when this is interfered with by the devils advocate.
  • Mark V for verse 8
    Not by our own works that any man should boast but the work of Christ on the cross Abiding in His good works that we are aires to the kingdom of God
  • I think the reference of genealogies is very interesting There are certain people of good Stock or privilege that feel they have the right to step on people they feel are beneath them or in certain religious circles Make you to feel guilty But in the kingdom of heaven those of the lowest perceived stature will hold the highest position at the right hand of Jesus Christ
  • E. S. Duggins for verse 2
    I've thought a lot about this, especially in regard to political leaders. I find it difficult to handle, in light of what I observe in Washington
    D.C. Surely we are not to sit idly by, and see them destroy the nation. Help me out here.
  • Valency Dema-king
    The Bible says we must test all the "spirits" and find out which is true and this obviously involves asking questions.So the Bible doesn't condemn healthy arguments that lead to the revelation of Biblical truths,but ones that result in quarrels due to the use of offensive or disparaging language in the quest to find the truth.We can ask questions and make arguments though but we must ensure that we find the answers from no other source than the Bible.Besides, the Bible speaks of only 'two ways':one leading to everlasting life and the other to destruction.Therefore the way to eternal life is only 'one',and to find this one way,we need to ask questions and seek the appropriate answers to them from the Bible(Matthew 7:7)So lets keep asking questions,but not foolish ones that lead us nowhere!I HAVE SPOKEN!
  • Albert Quartey for verse 9
    it is true we have to avoid asking foolish question because that will not lead us to the truth. As mortals, the most important and the most glorious thing to do is to gain the mind of Jesus Christ, to believe what he believed, to do what he did, to say what he said and to be as he is then we can exercise faith in God and to life and salvation.

    Titus 3:5"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;"
    The washing of--regeneration-(newness of life)-which found in Romans 6:4 "Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should ---walk in newness of life." Newness of life which is regeneration--our life is REGENERATED through water baptism.
    Romans 6:5 "For if we have been planted (buried, or baptized) together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:"

    6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

    6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

    Romans 6:6 "Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin". It's only by water baptism( in Jesus name)can we have a regenerated life, a newness of life. Water baptism destroys the OLD MAN of sin.

    Romans 6:77For he that is dead is freed from sin.
