to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men. (v2)

* Titus exhorts everyone to do the right thing – to outsiders, we need to live out good works, contributing at work and in the society; to believers, we should learn to bear more fruit. We should avoid slanderous arguments!

2 Thessalonians 2:1-17

* After WWII, a brother was serving the Lord in a remote area. He once told of the time when the Lord commanded Peter to set a net to catch fish, and the fishes he caught filled two boats. The brother said, “It is evident that those fish were willing to throw themselves into the net in obedience to the Lord’s command. What those fish got from God was just a little bit of lake water and some weeds, but once they were called by God, they were brave to choose to die. We have experienced a lifetime of grace from the Lord, what have we done for Him? About 700 people knelt down to pray and cried…”.

…and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. (v14b)

* In a fake and corrupt society – older men should be sober, reverent, sound in faith, in love and in patience; older women should not slander, not be given to much wine. Young women should love their husbands and children, be chasten, homemakers and gracious to others. Young men should be sober minded in a morally corrupt city. Pastors should set a pattern of good works, be sound in speech. Servants should be obedient to their master, be truthful…As salvation has been revealed, the church should manifest the divine virtues everywhere!

Titus 2:1-15

* A woman who had an unmarried pregnancy and abortion when she was young could not forgive herself for the rest of her life and was in pain. Then she met a Christian doctor who gave her two verses from the Bible and her pain was relieved! (1 John 1:9 / 2 Cor 5:17)

* In 64 AD, the Roman Emperor Nero blamed the Christians for the fire, and the city was filled with injustice. Peter and Paul were martyred during that storm. Pray that God would raise up leaders in the world and the church of faith, godliness, hope, eternal life, and love for God (v.1-2)

Titus 1:1-16

* Recently I read a letter from John Newton, who wrote: “Many a time when I was sick almost to the point of death. I was like a sailor sleeping on the mast in a night of thunder and rain, not knowing whether I would be swept into the roaring sea when the next wave came…. But when the new day arrives, I look back on the storm and am filled with gratitude and joy. God removed the veil from my eyes when I had no way out”.

* Dear Saints, Jesus is Lord! After three chemotherapy rounds, the PET scan report was positive, and there is no detectable trace of cancer cells (but this does not mean it is 100% gone). Today, the doctor said that no further radiotherapy was needed, but 5 rounds of chemotherapy are still needed. (During my PET scan, as I was lying alone, the Lord did a life scan for me, where He reminded me: from when I was young till now, over my few decades of life, through trials and tribulations, through mercy and grace, can I not be joyful?)

This Thursday will be my fourth chemotherapy, may there be prayers of the righteous believers!

– from one who shares with you in Jesus’ trials, patience and Kingdom, Sam Kong/瑞榮


* Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exil. Pray to the LORD for it…(Jeremiah 29:7)

Jeremiah 26-29: In times of trial, we must face up to reality, and continue to pray for “shalom” in whatever our condition. (shalom = prosperity, peace)。

we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. <3:7>

The Spirit turns mud into jewels:
1. Motive for doing good?v.36? poured with the Spirit!
2. Hope for doing good?v.715? receive the eternal life!

? fr Myra Tong (US) God will make a way , where there seems to be no way a song composed by Don Moen. …. One day he received a call from someone telling him that his brother died in a plane crashed. He told his mother… and the mother cried so helpless. With God’s spirit, Don told his mother ” I wish I could say something to make you feel better and yet I am sad too.But I know God will make a way.” … he hung up the phone and went to his piano which ” God will make a way” was being composed. —Myra (to listen)

awaiting the blessed hope …

Speak truly and frankly — build a healthy church with gospel:
1. Teach the elders?v.14a?to live a respectful and pure life and teach the young with good words.
2. Teach the young?v.4b8? to care the family, showing integrity and seriousness!
3. Teach the slaves?v. 915? to bear in mind Lords obedience, guilelessness, selflessness and sacrificing!
In this letter Paul warned them to be modest and self-controlled for 4 times (Titus 2). Its all because of the wickedness of men that need long time to change even after believing!

?7 habits to success — John Wanamaker made great contribution to church, the nation & society. in 1894 , the church he founded numbered to 12,000 in Sunday worships . His enterprise greatly benefited Philadelphia . He said he had 7 habits leading to his success: waking up early, positive towards life, practice of saving, love of reading ( books & Bible), good management & organizing, always encourage & appreciate others . Then the work of your life can be multiplied!

Tips for leaders — with a broad horizon – 3 important things:
1. Be diligent- in preaching Gods words ?v.14?
2. Preparein future leaders – wholeheartedly?v.59?
3. Fight the heresies with all our might ? v.1016?

?John Wanamaker the entrepreneur, the founder of departmental stores, also once the Postmaster General of America. In an interview he said, Running goverment office is just my side job. My career is being a Sunday school teacher. He asked for special permission from the President to travel from Washington to Philadelphia every weekend (where his church was ), that he can teach in Sunday school. Then he traveled back to Washington! He was a faithful teacher for 67 years, and he even set up prayer room in his departmental stores! He used to tell others that the biggest investment was his purchase of a red leather Bible– when he was 10! Reading this Book changed his life!
