  •  The hymn says, “Living for Jesus, a life that is true, striving to please Him in all that I do ….” 

    Titus 2:11-15 gives three suggestions that would help us in our living for Jesus. 

    First, we are told to turn from godless living. Ungodliness refers to the immoral, wicked, and evil. It has to do with that which has no place for God and for the things of God. We are told to love the things of God and to walk in His ways while turning our backs on ungodliness.
