The role of the family in displaying the Gospel is crucial. Paul therefore called Titus to live an exemplary life and pass his integrity on to his congregation. The mark of a godly young man, teaches Alistair Begg, is self-control, a seemingly simple demand that touches every part of life. Meanwhile, young women, shaped and influenced by older generations, can display Christ by their love and service. Christian families have powerful potential to display Christ’s character to a watching world.
4and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 5to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. 6Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. 7Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, 8and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.
