Read the Bible through with Yellow Creek Baptist Church:

Be Ready for Every Good Work
Tit 3:1
  Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 
Tit 3:2  to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone. 
Tit 3:3  At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 
Tit 3:4  But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 
Tit 3:5  he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 
Tit 3:6  whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 
Tit 3:7  so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 
Tit 3:8  This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone. 
Tit 3:9  But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. 
Tit 3:10  Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. 
Tit 3:11  You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned. 
Final Instructions and Greetings
Tit 3:12  As soon as I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, because I have decided to winter there. 
Tit 3:13  Do everything you can to help Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way and see that they have everything they need. 
Tit 3:14  Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives. 
Tit 3:15  Everyone with me sends you greetings. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. 

Phm 1:1
  Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother, To Philemon our dear friend and fellow worker— 
Phm 1:2  also to Apphia our sister and Archippus our fellow soldier—and to the church that meets in your home: 
Phm 1:3  Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 
Philemon’s Love and Faith
Phm 1:4  I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, 
Phm 1:5  because I hear about your love for all his holy people and your faith in the Lord Jesus. 
Phm 1:6  I pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of every good thing we share for the sake of Christ. 
Phm 1:7  Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people. 
Paul’s Plea for Onesimus
Phm 1:8  Therefore, although in Christ I could be bold and order you to do what you ought to do, 
Phm 1:9  yet I prefer to appeal to you on the basis of love. It is as none other than Paul—an old man and now also a prisoner of Christ Jesus— 
Phm 1:10  that I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, who became my son while I was in chains. 
Phm 1:11  Formerly he was useless to you, but now he has become useful both to you and to me. 
Phm 1:12  I am sending him—who is my very heart—back to you. 
Phm 1:13  I would have liked to keep him with me so that he could take your place in helping me while I am in chains for the gospel. 
Phm 1:14  But I did not want to do anything without your consent, so that any favor you do would not seem forced but would be voluntary. 
Phm 1:15  Perhaps the reason he was separated from you for a little while was that you might have him back forever— 
Phm 1:16  no longer as a slave, but better than a slave, as a dear brother. He is very dear to me but even dearer to you, both as a fellow man and as a brother in the Lord. 
Phm 1:17  So if you consider me a partner, welcome him as you would welcome me. 
Phm 1:18  If he has done you any wrong or owes you anything, charge it to me. 
Phm 1:19  I, Paul, am writing this with my own hand. I will pay it back—not to mention that you owe me your very self. 
Phm 1:20  I do wish, brother, that I may have some benefit from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ. 
Phm 1:21  Confident of your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I ask. 
Phm 1:22  And one thing more: Prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be restored to you in answer to your prayers. 
Final Greetings
Phm 1:23  Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends you greetings. 
Phm 1:24  And so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas and Luke, my fellow workers. 
Phm 1:25  The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.  (NIV)

Pray to the Lord

Yours in Christ,
