Titus 1:1-5

Paul, a servant[a] of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the sake of the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth, which accords with godliness, in hope of eternal life, which God, who never lies, promised before the ages began[b] and at the proper time manifested in his word[c] through the preaching with which I have been entrusted by the command of God our Savior;

To Titus, my true child in a common faith:

Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.

This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you

One response to “Titus 1:1-5

  1. God gifts and appoints people. To share His message, to lead his churches, and to shore up the faith and knowledge of believers. His elders oversee and teach His word. Other offices and ministries serve these elders.

    I have a part in this. I have to know my gifting and obey what he calls me to do.
