Do What Is Good

Unchecked Copy BoxTit 3:1 - Remind the believers to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good.

Unchecked Copy BoxTit 3:2 - They must not slander anyone and must avoid quarreling. Instead, they should be gentle and show true humility to everyone.

Unchecked Copy BoxTit 3:3 - Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient. We were misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy, and we hated each other.

Unchecked Copy BoxTit 3:4 - But—“When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love,

Unchecked Copy BoxTit 3:5 - he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxTit 3:6 - He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.

Unchecked Copy BoxTit 3:7 - Because of his grace he declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.”
