This letter is all about faith and actions, and how, when we live for Jesus, our lives need to be in sync with his. It includes themes of leadership, living with integrity and following Jesus - things that many of us struggle to get better at. The letter also features a lovely summary of the good news of Jesus (check out Titus 2:11-14)
This letter was written to Titus. Like Timothy he was a young leader who had been converted to Christianity by Paul. Titus was based in Crete, leading a church there, but Crete was a tough place in which to lead. He was having a rough time, as the Cretans didn't respect authority and were a bit wild. This letter was written not only to help Titus to address these issues and to persevere, but also to help him communicate the great truths of the Gospel.
