What is the public duty of the Christian? In Paul’s brief letter to Titus, we are reminded that God declares His children good, and His transforming power enables us to act accordingly. Alistair Begg reminds listeners that Christians should be marked by goodness. Although there are some whose verbal professions conflict with their conduct, we are called to be submissive to authority, to be in community with others, and to be courteous to all people.
1Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, 2to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.
