Part 6 of Titus – The gospel that Paul preached is truth that leads to godliness (Titus 1:1). It is the good news of God’s grace at work in Jesus Christ to purify a people for himself who will be his special possession, eager to do what is good (Titus 2:14). Paul instructed Titus to “teach what is in accord with sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1), and in our passage this morning Paul continues to instruct Titus (and us) about what such teaching entails. Here the focus is on what that good we are to be eager to do looks like as we live in the world.
