DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 1:1-53; Jeremiah 9:1-26; Ephesians 3:1-21

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. 2 Corinthians 13:14

What a gracious way to end a letter—the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the last line of the last chapter of Paul’s epistle. You might call it the bottom line for had it not been for the grace of God we’d all be hopelessly lost. But grace has appeared in Christ and with it the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. The fullness of the Godhead is enjoined in this benediction that begins with His marvelous grace. —Rex Trogdon

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear, the hour I first believed! —John Newton
