Titus 3:3-13 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
3 1For we also once were foolish ourselves, 2disobedient, 3deceived, 4enslaved to 5various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in 6malice and 7envy, hateful, hating one another. 4 But when the 8kindness of 9God our Savior and His love for mankind 10appeared, 5 11He saved us, 12not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but 13according to His mercy, by the 14washing of regeneration and 15renewing by the Holy Spirit, 6 16whom He poured out upon us 17richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by His grace we would be made 18heirs aaccording to the hope of eternal life. 8 19This is a trustworthy statement; and concerning these things I 20want you to speak confidently, so that those who have 21believed God will be careful to 22engage in good deeds. These things are good and profitable for men. 9 But 23avoid 24foolish controversies and 25genealogies and strife and 26disputes about the Law, for they are 27unprofitable and worthless. 10 28Reject a 29factious man 30after a first and second warning, 11 knowing that such a man is 31perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.

12 When I send Artemas or 32Tychicus to you, 33make every effort to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to 34spend the winter there. 13 Diligently help Zenas the 35lawyer and 36Apollos on their way so that nothing is lacking for them.
