15 Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.

The Christian should have nothing to do with the ungodliness of the world, people who follow their own passions. Our lives should be marked by the discipline of self-control. God’s mission is work, and we should be about it. It’s our job do declare to the world what is good, pure, and right. We need to encourage fellow Christians to have nothing to do with ungodliness and to rebuke those who brush it off as not a big deal. That’s our calling…
