Today we are reading the entire book of Titus. This is a letter written by Paul to Titus partially as an encouragement, but mostly for instruction on his responsibilities as the supervisor of the churches on the island of Crete. Titus was probably a convert to Christ through Paul’s ministry. Paul shows great confidence in Titus in the key verse of the book, Titus 1:5 The reason I left you in Crete was that you might put in order what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you. This is mostly a book of instruction that all of us can learn from.
