Titus 2In works they deny him; they show that they have no such knowledge. Their words and works disagree.Unto every good work reprobate; rejected as men given over to iniquity, from whom no good work is to be expected. Not the professions but the practices of men are the index of their true character. False accusers; given to slander. Not blasphemed; that the gospel be not reproached on account of the inconsistency of its professors. The gospel inculcates upon all professing Christians the duties appropriate to their age, sex, and condition; and requires the performance of them, for the purpose of honoring God and preventing the reproach which they will otherwise bring upon his cause. One of the most convincing proofs of the truth and excellence of the Christian religion is a consistently pious and beneficent life; and every friend of God should strive so to conduct, that no one can justly say any evil of him. In all things; where they can do it and at the same time please God.Not answering again; not contradicting or finding fault with their masters. Purloining; taking what is not theirs. Servants who conscientiously discharge their appropriate duties from regard to God, are a great ornament to the Christian religion, and do much to recommend it. They should therefore search the Scriptures, hear the gospel, and enjoy the means of grace, that their minds may be enlightened, their hearts purified, and all their powers employed most profitably to themselves and their fellow-men. That bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men; or, as the margin, the grace of God that bringeth salvation to all men, hath appeared. By the grace of God, in the gospel salvation is provided for and offered to all men, and it gives actual salvation to all who receive it in faith. Ro 1:16. The glorious appearing; at his second coming in glory to judge the world. Our Saviour Jesus Christ, who gave himself a ransom for us, and will be our final Judge, is the great God. As such all should regard him, and ever be governed by his revealed will. These things; the duties he had mentioned, verses Ti 2:1-14.Let no man despise thee; conduct in such a manner as to command the respect of all. Supreme love to Christ, manifested in acts of good-will to men, cannot be despised, but must be respected even by the wicked. Though they may hate and oppose it, their conscience condemns them, and thus forewarns them of their final doom.
