The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – The Blessing (1:4)
The Blessing (1:4)

This blessing, grace and peace, occurs regularly in the openings of Paul's letters (excepting 1 and 2 Tim). It is his wish that Titus enjoy God's unmeritable favor and unshakable peace. As Paul indicates, these blessings are the benefits of membership in God the Father's family and of participation in the salvation accomplished by Christ the Savior. For Titus and those who serve God, they are promises of divine provision and inner stability regardless of external circumstances. Paul's blessing also reminds the readers that the ministry initiated by God and Christ can be accomplished only by reliance upon them. Human means and strength are insufficient for the task.
