** As we began our study last time, we asked the question, "How is our genuine faith in Jesus Christ manifested?" The answer provided was, "It is manifested by our Godly Behavior". Do you recall the most frequently repeated character trait listed in Paul's instruction to Titus in chapter two?
V. 2 - "Older men are to be...sensible"
** Do you recall how we defined "living sensibly"?
** Paul's description of Genuine Christianity in chapter one and Godly Behavior in chapter two, brings us to the question, "How did all of this happen?" How did I turn from my sinful, self-centered lifestyle to one of loving and serving my Lord Jesus Christ?
