I love Titus 2:9 "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."!!
11For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. 12It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13while 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.
15These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
- Titus 2:11-15
It teaches us to say "no" to ungodliness and worldly passions... This statement goes directly back to the talk about gossip in my last post!
who 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 and again, Jesus Christ gave himself for US!!! We are better than talking about people, better than any temptation placed in front of you!
Another amazingly rich book! I just love the Bible!
