Titus – Overlooked And Underrated
I grew up in church. That means I attended church on Sunday, Sunday nights, and Wednesday nights. Plus, if there was a revival or meeting, we attended those too. So, you would think that I would have heard about all the Biblical figures in the Bible. However, I don’t believe that I’ve ever listened to a sermon on Titus, which was an injustice to this man.
Who Was Titus
According to the Bible, Titus was a Gentile believer who accompanied Paul on some of his missionary journeys. He’s first mentioned in Galatians 2, where Paul describes how he took Titus to Jerusalem to meet with the other apostles and defend the gospel they were preaching.
Titus is mentioned several times in the New Testament as a companion and co-worker of the Apostle Paul.
2 Corinthians 2:13
13 I still had no peace of mind, because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I said goodbye to them and went on to Macedonia.
2 Corinthians 7:5-7
5 For even when we came into Macedonia, our bodies had no rest, but we were afflicted at every turn—fighting without and fear within. 6 But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus, 7 and not only by his coming but also by the comfort with which he was comforted by you, as he told us of your longing, your mourning, your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced still more.
This passage shows that Titus was not just a colleague to Paul but a source of comfort and encouragement to him during a difficult time. Through Titus’ words and actions, Paul was reminded of the love and support of his fellow believers, which brought him great comfort and joy.
Are You A Titus
Everyone needs a Titus in their life. A colleague, partner, friend, and brother who is there for them during good times and bad. Paul talked about going through a battle and being gripped by fear. He mentions that God comforted him by sending Titus. How wonderful it would be to be used by the Lord to comfort someone.
Can you imagine how Paul’s eyes lit up when he saw Titus coming? We’ve all heard and read about Paul the Apostle. The Lord used Paul to encourage the churches at Rome, Corinth, Galatia, Ephesus, Philippi, Colossae, and Thessalonica. Many people came to The Lord because of Paul and his teachings. But even Paul needed someone here on earth, and that person was Titus.
Take a few minutes to think about who YOUR Titus is and who YOU are a Titus to.
To God Goes The Glory
Have A Blessed Day
In a world that seems to be doom and gloom at every turn it’s nice to see a story that makes you feel good. I hope I’m a Titus to others.
That was so uplifting-thank you.
Thank you for all you do. I don’t always comment or order, but I read your blog every day. Keep up the good work.
Thank you for the Titus quick lesson! It blessed my life. I am proud of the way you give glory to God and the fact that you don’t hide that you are a Christian. People are hurting everywhere and everyday. You are making a difference in someone’s life out in blog land. We Christians should speak up more and be more public about the truth of God’s precious word. I think it is just wonderful you are doing that in your own way. God bless you and I wish you much success with getting truth out and also with your great fashion blog.’
My Titus is Kathleen, a 74-years young believer I’ve known for 30 years.
I love your heart for the Lord and sharing your thoughts, along with fashion news.
Thank you. I look forward to reading your blog each day!
Thank you for sharing this!
My married name is Titus. We will be enjoying our 35th wedding Anniversary this year. My husband serves the name well.
You are a blessing and you do bring glory to God!
Thanks for this sweet sharing!
Thank you so much for sharing this, I’m actually speaking at a Ladies conference next week and using scripture from Titus, but I understand even better now the man. Blessings!
Thank you for the reminder to encourage and express gratitude for the encouragement I receive from others.
Interesting. Thanks for sharing 🙂
What a beautiful lesson. Thank you.
Exactly why we named our Beagle Titus! Friend and comforter and one who brings us joy.
thank you, thank you for sharing this today! God bless and have an amazing week!❤️
Thank you, Tania, for this. In my youth, I attended a Church called St. Timothy. Timothy and Titus were companions to Paul. Very interesting and enlightening to pursue. I am fortunate to have many Titus’s in my life, and I try to be a Titus to others every day by keeping a positive and helpful attitude. God bless you and all readers.
Thank you for sharing this. I’m a Titus to many these days but I feel it’s my calling. I do have a few friends I can connect with when I need them.
Another Sunday inspiring message.
I have never heard of Titus before ,Tania. Thank you for sharing this beautiful story.
Titus is after 1 Timothy and 2nd Timothy in the Bible. Three chapters.
Really good message about Titus. ❤️
Thank you I need to be more of a Titus.
Thank you Tania for this message of Titus.
I enjoy your Sunday Faith Devotions!
God blessed us with YOU to be a Titus! You’re faithfulness to post these messages and a daily scripture despite what it has cost you is a testament to your willingness to serve others. Thank you!
Good Sunday Morning Tania,
You’re, Sunday devos never disappoint!
You are right about Titus. I don’t recall having ever heard a sermon on Titus.
Thanks for sharing and encouraging me to look for ways to be a Titus in someone’s life.
Counting it all joy,
Thankyou for that lesson on Titus. I never thought much about him.
Thank you for sharing this message. I try to be like Titus, but I was not sure if I was being a good friend. Now I realize I could be making a difference in someone else’s life by just being there and sharing God’s message of hope.
A thought provoking and inspiring message, today. I have taken the time to identify who Titus is in my life and who I am as a Titus role to others. Thank you for posting. I agree, “Titus” is a valuable participant in all our lives.
Thanks for the laughs this week, especially the borrowed golf shirt story.
Blessings to you.
Good Morning, Tania! You might want to check out the book of Titus which follows 2Timothy. It’s Paul’s letter and instructions to his dear friend Titus, who he refers to as “my true son in our common faith” and which shows how much Paul appreciated and loved Titus. You are so right…we all need to be a Titus and we need a Titus in our lives. Thank you so much, Tania for being a blessing in so many of our lives!
Beautifully said Kay – we all need to be a Titus!
Thank you for “Titusing” me today! I needed that reminder to encourage others. Blessings to you, Tania!
Thank you for today’s post. It is beautiful and inspiring.
I am blessed to read your daily scriptures. Thank you.
I, like you, was at church for every meeting. Guess I didn’t listen like I should have because I started listening to J Vernon McGee Thru the Bible a few years back and learned so many new things. He also had said Titus is not taught very much. Great book. Thank you
Love your Sunday messages, always starts my day so thank you for bringing these to us!
it’s funny how I’ve been thinking lately that I need to act more like my good friend. she is my Titus, and I have been asking the Lord to help me to be kind and gentle and be a good friend.
I came on my phone this morning just to read your email. I suddenly thought I needed to read this, and it turns out to be exactly reaffirming what I’ve been trying to do all week!
Isn’t it funny how the Lord talks to us?
