This letter is from Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ. I have been sent to bring faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives.
This truth gives them the confidence of eternal life, which God promised them before the world began -- and he cannot lie.
And now at the right time he has revealed this Good News, and we announce it to everyone. It is by the command of God our Savior that I have been trusted to do this work for him.
This letter is written to Titus, my true child in the faith that we share.May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior give you grace and peace.
