The Epistle of Paul to Titus
Be Careful to Maintain Good Works
Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
to speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness unto all men.
For we ourselves also were sometime foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
that being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
¶ This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, reject;
knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
¶ When I shall send Ar'temas unto thee, or Tych'icus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicop'olis: for I have determined there to winter. Acts 20.4 · Eph. 6.21, 22 · Col. 4.7, 8 · 2 Tim. 4.12
Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apol'los on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them. Acts 18.24 · 1 Cor. 16.12
And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
¶ All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith.
Grace be with you all. Amen.
