say these kinds of things

Titus 2:11-15 (JDV)

Titus 2:11 Because the favor of God has appeared, announcing salvation for all humans,
Titus 2:12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly lusting, and to live self-controlled, fair, and godly lives in the present age,
Titus 2:13 waiting for our blessed hope, the glorious appearance of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
Titus 2:14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for himself a people who are uniquely his — enthusiastic about doing good achievements.
Titus 2:15 You should say these kinds of things; encourage and reprimand because you have every right to do so. Do not let anyone wonder about your right to teach them.

say these kinds of things

This passage gives advice to Titus about the kinds of things he should be saying as he goes about his task of managing the mission work on Crete. He should be telling people about the salvation God has announced in Christ. He should be telling the Cretan Christians to renounce ungodliness and live godly lives in this present age. He should be pointing them toward the next age, which will begin when Jesus appears gloriously at his second coming.
