Titus Outline
Titus 1:1

1 Paul, a aslave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ baccording to the 1cfaith of God's 2dchosen ones and the 3efull knowledge of the truth, which is 4faccording to godliness,


11 Paul was an apostle according to four things: (1) the command of God (1 Tim. 1:1), (2) the promise of life (2 Tim. 1:1), (3) the faith of God's chosen ones, and (4) the full knowledge of the truth, which is according to godliness. The command, on God's side, speaks for Him and requires something of us for Him. Faith, on our side, responds to God's requirements and receives His life. Faith is a proclamation that we are unable to fulfill God's requirements but that God has done everything for us and that we receive what He has done. The life promised by God is what we have received of Him for the carrying out of His demand. It was in this way that Paul was an apostle to administrate God's New Testament economy.
