Proving the Gospel by Example – Titus 2:7-8

“Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.” The Apostle Paul encourages Titus to become a living testimony of the gospel by being a model or example in word and deed of the gospel he teaches. Living out the gospel in one’s daily life through ethical behavior–honesty, respect, and wholesome speech–keeps Christians from providing any legitimate grounds for the gospel to be criticized and actually influences others to believe the gospel. By becoming a living testimony,you prove the gospel to those who don’t believe it and even to those who oppose it.
