Knowing the Truth and Living the Truth

Letters are remarkably personal pieces of literature. Academics mine them for information on topics of choice, knowing that information in letters is often personal and reflective. Fans treasure them for their insights into the lives of those they adore. And journalists love them for often salacious details that they reveal about writers and recipients. The letters we have in the New Testament are no different for their personal revelations. But we treasure them as God’s people because they are God’s word through the pens and lives of His people. Today we start one of those letters – Titus. It is deeply personal, a letter from an older Christian apostle to a younger protégé. It contains deeply personal exhortation from Paul to Titus, as Titus is left to do a difficult job. But the last line of the letter – in the plural – widens the scope of the letter’s significance to all God’s people, everywhere – and that includes us in Narrabri. This week, we will meet the writer and the recipient, and next week the context of this letter’s composition.
