Titus 3:1-7 New International Version

Be Careful to Maintain Good Works

3 1  Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2  to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone. 3  At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4  But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5  he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6  whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7  so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
