I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand. Remember my chains. Grace be with you.
Grace be with you… I have studied grace for a number of years, and have put together a definition of God’s grace: the unearned, undeserved, spontaneous friendship and love of God, which He delights to share with the believer. So when Paul says, “Grace be with you”, if we insert the definition here, the verse would read, “As you go through your days, remember that the unearned spontaneous friendship and love of God goes with you”. Be delighted. Find pleasure in it and share His grace generously with others, as He has shared generously with you.
