Titus Lesson 3: “Look for Good Works”
Motivation: A misinformed view of salvation sees a scale weighing our good deeds against our bad deeds. Paul refutes the idea that good deeds are the root of salvation (3:5); in this same passage he clearly teaches that good deeds are the fruit of salvation.

II Timothy Lesson 3: “Be Guided by God’s Word”
Motivation: Jesus said that by their fruit you would know them (Matt. 7:16). This applies to Godly people as illustrated by Paul as well as the ungodly as illustrated by the false teachers. Correct doctrine should result in right living. (Heb. 1:1-3)
