Bible: Titus 2:9-15

2:9 Slaves 1  are to be subject to their own masters in everything, 2  to do what is wanted and not talk back, 2:10 not pilfering, but showing all good faith, 3  in order to bring credit to 4  the teaching of God our Savior in everything.

2:11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. 5  2:12 It trains us 6  to reject godless ways 7  and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 2:13 as we wait for the happy fulfillment of our hope in the glorious appearing 8  of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. 9  2:14 He 10  gave himself for us to set us free from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for himself a people who are truly his, 11  who are eager to do good. 12  2:15 So communicate these things with the sort of exhortation or rebuke 13  that carries full authority. 14  Don’t let anyone look down 15  on you.
