Everything I Ever Needed To Know I Learned from Titus

(Part 1 of 2)

For the faith of God’s elect and the knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness— a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time *** At his appointed season he brought his word to light through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior  *** Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior. *** An elder must be blameless, the husband of but one wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient.  *** Since an overseer is entrusted with God’s work, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. *** He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. *** There are many rebellious people, mere talkers and deceivers *** They must be silenced, because they are ruining whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach—and that for the sake of dishonest gain. *** Rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith  *** To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. *** You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine *** Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. *** Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. ***  Train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. *** Encourage the young men to be self-controlled. *** In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us. *** Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them, and not to steal from them, but to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive.
