Titus 2 - 4 Life
mentoring biblical men and women on the journey of life
In the last days there will come times of difficulty. People will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous,
reckless, swollen with conceit,
lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness,
but denying its power.
(2 Timothy 3:1-5 ESV)
What is the
promise and hope?
For the grace of God has
appeared, bringing salvation
for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
(Titus 2:11-14 ESV)
Welcome to the home of Titus 2 for Life!
Come in... and sit with us for a while.
Be encouraged... and ready to engage this life with hope!
There is a model found
in God's Word for male and female:
Tell believers to live the kind of life that goes along with accurate teachings.
Tell older men to be sober. Tell them to be men of good character,
to use good judgment, and to be well-grounded in faith, love, and endurance.
Tell older women to live their lives in a way that shows they are dedicated to God.
Tell them not to be gossips or addicted to alcohol, but to be examples of virtue.
In this way they will teach young women to show love to their husbands and children,
to use good judgment, and to be morally pure.
Also, tell them to teach young women to be homemakers,
to be kind, and to place themselves under their husbands’ authority.
Then no one can speak evil of God’s Word.
Encourage young men to use good judgment.
Always set an example by doing good things.
When you teach, be an example of moral purity and dignity.
Speak an accurate message that cannot be condemned.
Titus 2:1-8 (NIV)
