Titus 2:11-12

King James Version

11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation 

hath appeared to all men,

12 Teaching us that, 

denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, 

we should live soberly, 


and godly, 

in this present world;

What is a godly man?

How shall he be defined?

What must he do?

What must he be?
