Everything I ever needed to know I learned from the Book of Titus (Part 2 of 2) 

The grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. *** It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. *** Do not let anyone despise you. *** Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men. *** At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. ***  We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. *** But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. *** He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. *** These things are excellent and profitable for everyone. *** Avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. *** Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned. *** Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order that they may provide for daily necessities and not live unproductive lives. *** Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all.
