In the New Testament letter to Titus, we read Paul’s mandate to live devoted lives of obedience and to express goodness to all. Alistair Begg teaches that the goodness which marks the Christian is a learned, purposeful, and beneficial behavior. Even the routine activities of daily life have divine importance as they bring glory to God by grace that He gives. Each of God’s children is important to Him, and all of our deeds are good for something and someone in Christ.
12When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there. 13Do your best to speed Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way; see that they lack nothing. 14And let our people learn to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful.
15All who are with me send greetings to you. Greet those who love us in the faith.
Grace be with you all.
