Live right and die right.

In Titus 3:1-2, Paul spends a large amount of time in his wiritings exhorting the saints to live right,  He does this  because we need to know what kind of life God wants us to live.  Here are some more of his exhortations this morning.  Beleivers are subject to rulers and authorities.  Paul talks about this subject in many of his letters.  This is important for the Christian to be a model citizen.  To be obedient.  Not only to the cause of Christ but also to the government.  The Christian should always be ready to do good for the cause of Christ.  This is Christianity in action.  A Christian is not to slander anyone.  It is our task to look for the good in people and to lift and build them up in the Lord.  We are not to be contentious.  It is the mission of the church to promote all that is good and that means we are not to be stubborn and cause trouble.  The Christian is to gentle.  This is extending a loving and kind hand to all who need it.  This means having a controlled disposition.  We are lastly to show consideration to all people.  This means that we are to realize that every person is created in the image of God.  That God loves that person and that we must show the same love and respect that He does for them.  Your promises today are:  Deut 31:6, Psalm 16:11, 25:9, 32:8, Prov 2:8, 3:5-6, 11:3, Isaiah 30:21 45:2, John 16:13 & Rev 3:8.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  Some of the greatest ugliness in history has been hidden in the guise of beauty.  Jesus said, He was the way, the problem is that most have not even started the trip.
