L. M. Grant's Commentary on the Bible
Titus

Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3

Book Overview - Titus

by L.M. Grant

The two fellowservants to whom Paul writes as individuals (Timothy and Titus) both required ministry which emphasizes truth and personal godliness, though each from a different viewpoint. For Timothy's evident godliness apparently tended toward introspection. and he must be reminded that the truth of God is the true regulator of all godliness. Titus on the other hand, possibly because he was more objective, or extrovert, was reminded that truth is according to godliness; that is that truth, rightly held, will produce personal godliness. How watchful is the Spirit of God to encourage true balance among saints! The name Titus means "nurse" and to properly care for the state of souls he must allow the truth to do its own vital work in his own soul.
