While waiting for the blessed hope and glorious appearance of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul admonished the church not only on how the elders and the bishop should live, he also admonishes the rest that they should speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine.
It is because sound doctrine will produce the right behavior and right living so that the word of God may not be blasphemed and others having nothing evil to say of us.
Let us continue to remember that it is the grace of God that brings salvation to us and the grace of God also teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts. We should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age while waiting for the blessed hope and glorious appearance of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ.
