I, Paul, am writing this letter. I serve God. I am an apostle of Jesus Christ. God sent me to help his chosen people believe in Christ. I have been sent to help them understand the truth that leads to godly living.
Faith and understanding rest on the hope of eternal life. Before time began, God promised to give that life. And he does not lie.
At just the right time he made his word plain. He did it through the preaching that he trusted me with. God our Savior has commanded all those things.
Titus, I am sending you this letter. You are my true son in the faith we share. May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior give you grace and peace.
