Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Titus 3:4

_ _ To show how little reason the Cretan Christians had to be proud of themselves, and despise others not Christians (see on Titus 3:2, Titus 3:3). It is to the “kindness and love of God,” not to their own merits, that they owe salvation.

_ _ kindnessGreek, “goodness,” “benignity,” which manifests His grace.

_ _ love ... toward man — teaching us to have such “love (benevolence) toward man” (Greek, “philanthropy”), “showing all meekness unto all men” (Titus 3:2), even as God had “toward man” (Titus 2:11); opposed to the “hateful and hating” characteristics of unrenewed men, whose wretchedness moved God’s benevolent kindness.

_ _ of God our SaviourGreek, “of our Savior God,” namely, the Father (Titus 1:3), who “saved us” (Titus 3:5) “through Jesus Christ our Savior” (Titus 3:6).

_ _ appearedGreek, “was made to appear”; was manifested.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Titus 3:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Titus 3:4

When the love of God appeared — By the light of his Spirit to our inmost soul.
