1. Exhortation to godly living (2:1-10). Paul speaks to Titus to teach the brethren about living godly in this evil world in order that the way of Christ not be spoken of in an unfavorable way. To the patriarchs and to the young men they are to be sure to be firm in doctrine and faithfulness; to the women they are to be sure to tend to those things pertaining to husbands (respectively) and children.
2. A reason for this godly exhortation (2:11-15). We are to live godly in this evil world because we look for something not of this world, but we look for the Lord to come again. This kind of teaching, Paul said, was to be preached with the authority of the Lord.
