Titus 2:7-8 ESV “Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, [8] and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.”

It is a pure instruction for a younger person involved with God’s ministry. Anybody committed to the work of the gospel of Christ is bound to listen to this piece of time tested advice. If we have denied ourselves…taking up his cross and following the Lord Jesus, we need to show these qualities …

Paul motivates Titus to be a model of good works in the Assembly of God and his elect. In 1 Timothy 4:12, Timothy is intructed to be a person who should not be despised of his youth, but should set the members an example in speech, conduct, love, faith and in purity. Thus we can only reach out our own brothers and sisters in Christ and preach the gospel of Christ when we maintain our words, deeds and thoughts in a Christ-centered fashion.

Paul emphasises on Titus’ godly teaching that stems from his life that clearly demonstrates his cent percent devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ. It is clear that we should live out our gospel-entered faith in the society so that God may be glorified. Our quiet and calm life coupled with the Word driven decision making life style can draw many closer to the Lord Jesus Christ.
