Titus 3

Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do every good work, To speak evil of no man, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all courtesy to all men. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, deceived, slaves to various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy; hated, and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Saviour appeared, He saved us, not because of works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing by the Holy Spirit; Whom he poured out upon us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs, having the hope of eternal life. This is a faithful saying; and I want you to affirm these things constantly, that those who have believed in God might be careful to engage in good works. These things are good and profitable for men. But avoid foolish controversies, and genealogies, and dissensions, and wrangling about the law; for they are unprofitable and futile. 10 Reject a man who is divisive after a first and second warning; 11 Knowing that such a man is perverted and sinful; condemned by himself. 12 When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, be diligent to come to me at Nicopolis: for I have determined to winter there. 13 Be diligent to send Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way; see that they lack nothing. 14 And let our people learn to engage in honest employment, so they may meet urgent needs, and that they may not be unfruitful. 15 All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all.
