Titus 3

Titus 3:1  
Remind them to be in subjection to rulers and to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,

Titus 3:2  
to speak evil of no one, not to be contentious, to be gentle, showing all humility toward all men.

Titus 3:3  
For we were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

Titus 3:4  
But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love toward mankind appeared,

Titus 3:5  
not by works of righteousness which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy, he saved us through the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,

Titus 3:6  
whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior;

Titus 3:7  
that being justified by his grace, we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Titus 3:8  
This saying is faithful, and concerning these things I desire that you insist confidently, so that those who have believed God may be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men;

Titus 3:9  
but shun foolish questionings, genealogies, strife, and disputes about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

Titus 3:10  
Avoid a factious man after a first and second warning,

Titus 3:11  
knowing that such a one is perverted and sinful, being self-condemned.

Titus 3:12  
When I send Artemas to you, or Tychicus, be diligent to come to me to Nicopolis, for I have determined to winter there.

Titus 3:13  
Send Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey speedily, that nothing may be lacking for them.

Titus 3:14  
Let our people also learn to maintain good works to meet necessary needs, that they may not be unfruitful.

Titus 3:15  
All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
