In his letter to Titus, a younger minister, Paul charges him to “set things in order.” The interpretive key of the whole letter is found in Titus 1:5: “For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking.” There were critical matters that needed to be settled to produce an orderly and godly expression of the church of Jesus Christ. Titus lived on one of the most beautiful islands in the Aegean Sea, inhabited by what someone referred to as some of the most bull-headed people you could ever meet in such a lovely spot. Paul’s letter shows how sound doctrine leads to godly living.
