Be ye perfect, as your Father, which is in heaven, is perfect

Titus 1:1-9

Titus was another of Paul’s sons in the faith, and is spoken of by the apostle as “my partner and fellow-helper.” Paul wrote this epistle to give him instructions how to put in order the churches of Crete to which he had been sent.

Titus 1:5

The gospel had been preached in Crete, and converts made; but the churches needed to be properly constituted. Churches without elders are like an army without officers. Those err greatly who despise order.

Titus 1:6

So that a church has no right to forbid ministers to marry.

Titus 1:7-9

bishop or overseer, described in the fifth verse as an elder

Titus 1:7-9

See what ministers ought to be, and pray that many such may be found for our churches.

Titus 2:1-14

Titus 2:1, 2

Aged Christians are nearer heaven than others, and should be more heavenly-minded.

Titus 2:3-5

The young woman’s first duty is at home.

Titus 2:9, 10

Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again; not disputing, or using impertinent language.

Titus 2:9, 10

Not purloining or stealing little things, whether under the name of perquisites or otherwise

Titus 2:11-14

We have heard much of “the peculiar people,” be it ours to be peculiarly holy.

 

When from the curse he sets us free,

He makes our natures clean;

Nor would he send his Son to be

The minister of sin.

 


My Saviour and my King,

Thy beauties are divine;

Thy lips with” blessings overflow,

And every grace is thine.

 

Thy laws, O God, are right;

Thy throne shall ever stand;

And thy victorious gospel prove

A sceptre in thy hand.
