1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, 2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. 3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 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; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 8 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. 9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. 10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself. 12 When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter. 13 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them. 14 And let our's also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful. 15 All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.

1 angela h = "Paul is referring to those who would despise Titus (mentioned in 2:15). Titus is to remind them that he is in charge and they are to be obedient unto him as long as he is not asking them to do something against God. (Acts 5:29)Titus is to tell them to keep their mouths shut and don't start fights. Instead they should be gentle and humble to everyone."
2 Cary W = "This verse wonderfully reminds us to never be a harsh judge or critic of another, always being mindful of the great mercy and grace of God given us, that while we were yet fallen, in darkness and living foolishly, God gave us His Son as Savior, Redeemer and Life giver."
3 angela h = "We are at times disobedient and need admonishing. This is no different for any believer. When the Pastors/Elders hold others accountable and teach them better, then they are showing the love of Jesus.God commendeth His love for us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8"
4 angela h = "God makes us "new creatures" when we come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17He indwells us with His Spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:19Justified "just as if I had never sinned" by grace (unmerited favor)Heirs of hope of eternal life-we inherit (just like a child) eternal life with Christ ( John 1:12)"
5 angela h = "Paul tells Titus that what he has just wrote to him is trustworthy and that he(Titus) should make it known constantly. He should do this because we are soon to forget and we need reminding to continue doing good and waiting on Jesus."
6 angela h = "Watch out for those who ask silly questions and try to argue about everything. It is no good for the church."
7 angela h = "Any one who does tries to start arguments in the church (especially about doctrine) is to be warned 2 times. After the two warnings he is to be put out or avoided. One can see he is there to tear the church apart and is in sin. His own actions condemns him not the Pastor/Elder/Church."
8 angela h = "Paul tells Titus that he will be sending someone to let him know when to come see him in Nicopolis. Paul plans to spent the winter there.He tells Titus to be sure Zenas and Apollos have everything needed."
9 angela h = "Paul charges us not to stand idle while we wait for Jesus. We are to work while we wait. (Matthew 9:37)"
