As a servant of God and an apostle of Christ, Paul wrote to Titus with a clear purpose: to see men and women come to faith and grow in their knowledge of the truth. In this study of Titus 1:1–4, Alistair Begg explores the authority and single-mindedness of Paul’s ministry as he examines the doctrine of election. As Paul affirmed, although God is sovereign, we still have the responsibility to believe and proclaim the Gospel.
1Paul, a servant1 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, 2in hope of eternal life, which God, who never lies, promised before the ages began2 3and at the proper time manifested in his word through the preaching with which I have been entrusted by the command of God our Savior;
4To Titus, my true child in a common faith:
Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.
