Show Notes

Right living is essential because Christ “gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed,” saving us “by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit” (Titus 2:14; 3:5).


Paul writes a letter to his co-worker, Titus, to address concerns about false teaching. To help him deal with this problem, Paul provides Titus with a portrait of a healthy church. He describes proper leadership (Titus 1:5–9), proper handling of error (Titus 1:10–16; 3:9–11), proper Christian living (especially important for new believers in an immoral setting; Titus 2:1–10; Titus 3:1–2), and the gospel as the source of godliness (Titus 2:11–14; Titus 3:3–7).


Additional scriptures referenced include Titus 3:1-2, 8 and Acts 14:21-23.
