4 To Titus, a true son in our common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.
The believer has both peace with God at salvation and peace of God when he appropriates what he has to his experience. Grace is the source but peace is the result.
from God the Father
Grace, mercy, and peace originate from the Father. The Bible never refers to God as the Father of individuals nor to humanity in general in the Old Testament. “Father” is a special term for those He claims as His own, such as Israel. The New Testament always uses Father in reference to those who belong to Him through faith.
and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.
Barriers dissolve between believers because we have a common Savior; He is “our” Savior. Verse three said that God is our Savior; this verse says that the Lord Jesus is our Savior.
The Christian can have God’s peace in his daily living.
We cannot live the Christian life without grace, mercy, and peace any more than we can run our car without gas, oil, and water.
The devil will try to cheat us out of peace in our soul. It is not normal Christian living for our lives to be constantly upset. If a ship is upside down, it has a problem. If it is right side up, then that is normal. It is normal for Christians to possess peace in their lives. They claim it by keeping their minds fixed on God’s promises.
Is 26: 3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
Ph 4: 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
