Titus 3:1-8

ESV 1 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, MSG 1 Remind the people to respect the government and be law-abiding, always ready to lend a helping hand ESV 2 to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. MSG 2 No insults, no fights. God's people should be bighearted and courteous. ESV 3 For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. MSG 3 It wasn't so long ago that we ourselves were stupid and stubborn, dupes of sin, ordered every which way by our glands, going around with a chip on our shoulder, hated and hating back. ESV 4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, MSG 4 But when God, our kind and loving Savior God, stepped in, ESV 5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, MSG 5 he saved us from all that. It was all his doing; we had nothing to do with it. He gave us a good bath, and we came out of it new people, washed inside and out by the Holy Spirit. ESV 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, MSG 6 Our Savior Jesus poured out new life so generously. ESV 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. MSG 7 God's gift has restored our relationship with him and given us back our lives. And there's more life to come - an eternity of life! ESV 8 The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people. MSG 8 You can count on this.
