Titus 3:1-7 KJV “Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,  To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.  For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.  But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,  Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;  Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;  That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”
Wow, how well said. The Holy Spirit reminds us that we were once slaves of this sinful worldly system; that we too lived wickedly, hence we should have understanding and compassion for those who are presently in that state. The Holy Spirit reminds us also to be in subjection to human principalities, powers, and magistrates. To be ready to do every good work and to speak evil of no man/woman. How often are we tempted to speak evil of earthly rulers who tell us to do things that are uncomfortable or make no sense? As long as we are not being told to break any of God’s laws we are to submit to the authorities put in place by God. (Romans 13:1-7)
Let us be careful to obey God and, ‘Speak evil of no man/woman.’ Our words are very powerful. When we use our mouths the way God tells us to our enemy the Devil has no place in our lives. But when we grumble and complain it’s different, we open the door to evil spirits. Let’s not give Satan the electricity (power) he needs to operate on or in us.
