Titus 1:1-4;2:15-3:3,12-13,15 (Apostles)

1

Paul, a bondservant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect and the acknowledgment of the truth which accords with godliness,

2

in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began,

3

but has in due time manifested His word through preaching, which was committed to me according to the commandment of God our Savior;

4

To Titus, a true son in our common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.

15

Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.

1

Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,

2

to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.

3

For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another.

12

When I send Artemas to you, or Tychicus, be diligent to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there.

13

Send Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey with haste, that they may lack nothing.

15

All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
