This will be the first in a series of sermons from Paul’s letter to Titus. Titus was left on Crete to shore up the foundation of the church. To deal with the problems that he will talk about in this letter and how Titus can “straighten out what was left undone”. Paul understands the challenges Titus will face and that he shouldn’t have to do it alone. He needs help and he needs the right kind of help.
