Titus 3:15

All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith.
Grace 
be with you all. Amen. Titus 3:15

Paul gives his final words of the epistle for Titus to read, and also to act on. He first says, “All who are with me greet you.” It is a standard word signifying to greet, wish well, or salute. It is unknown who was with him, and it is also unknown where he was at the time of his writing. Quite often, he would include a named list of those with him. However, that is omitted here. Thus, Titus was obviously aware both of who was with him and where he was.

Next, he says, “Greet those who love us in the faith.” There is actually no article in front of “faith,” and so it reads, “Greet those who love us in faith.” Paul is speaking of the state of faith in which those he is addressing exist. Their love is in that state. It is to those in that state that he sends greeting to.

Finally, he ends as he does in some other epistles with, “Grace be with you. Amen.” In Greek, it literally states, “The grace,” and thus he is speaking of “the grace of Jesus Christ” specifically. Paul desires them (and thus us!) to have and live in the grace of Jesus Christ. He then closes with “Amen,” or “So be it.”

Life application: Having read and studied the book of Titus, you are now admonished to continue reading it, along with the rest of Scripture, every day of your lives. Pursue the Lord, cherish His word, and be ready to share both with others at all times. Always be prepared!

Lord God, how can we be prepared to share Your word with others if we don’t know it? Give us the wisdom to pick it up, read it, and contemplate it daily. Open our eyes to its truths, give us understanding of it, and the desire to then share it with others. Help us to be bold in our proclamation of it, and to always stand fast on its truth. No matter where others go, may we hold fast to the truth of Jesus Christ – the Author and Subject of the word of God. Amen.

  • Amen in a world that is ravaged by spiritual drought the bible is our food, air and water keeping us alive and strong as we move towards the finish line towards Jesus! It is our guide and road map to salvation. It is a living book with endless knowledge waiting to revieal itself to us at the perfect time for our growth and understanding of Gods will for us. We should should jump for joy that we can pick up a bible and read it or even listen to it anytime we want to! So many around the world do not enjoy this freedom and are persecuted for even mentioning it’s name! Do not squander this amazing blessing the lord has given us! Some how some way we should all go to the bible everyday even if it’s just for a single verse! It’s what Gives us the knowledge the lord wants us to have so we can be prepared whiteness for Jesus and so we can keep Satan at bay!

    Grace Mercy and Peace on you and yours

    We are another day closer to home Amen
