Bible Study: Living a Life of Integrity
Scripture: Titus 1:16
Key Verse: “They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.” (Titus 1:16)
Introduction: In our society, there is often a disconnect between what people say and what they do. This can be especially true when it comes to matters of faith. Many people claim to know God, but their actions don’t always align with that claim. In Titus 1:16, Paul warns against this type of hypocrisy and encourages believers to live a life of integrity.
