Titus had been commissioned to set in order things which were wanting in the assembly, and ordain elders.. We get a full statement of what may be called the Christian scheme in chapter 2:11-14 – directions and sound doctrine. Chapter 3 gives us exhortations as to patience with all, through the sense of grace bestowed on ourselves.
In the epistles to Timothy and Titus, God has specially the title and character of God the Saviour, with its importance to all men.
Grace enters into the Christian’s conduct, and does not merely rest on doctrine. Leaving the recognised authorities of the world where they are, this letter leads the individual Christian to act in grace in the relationships into which he was found.
