May the Grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ Be With Your Spirit

Happy Friday Saints.

The Apostle Paul ends his letter to the Galatians with an apostolic benediction, “THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH YOUR SPIRIT, BROTHERS AND SISTERS. AMEN.” (Galatians 6:18)

He started with GRACE (Galatians 1:3) and ended with GRACE – a great example and lesson for us all.

In a letter that was written to deal with false doctrine and to counter those who were trying to mislead the Galatians into a works-based salvation – Paul corrected them with GRACE bookends.

Anytime we have to correct or discipline others, it must be done with love and grace. Paul’s motives were honourable and pure.

Those who use the pulpit or their position to disgrace or humiliate others shouldn’t be in leadership. Leaders who use their influence to control, manipulate, or belittle others are not leaders; they are small-minded schemers who are not Christ-focused but self-centred and self-serving. They don’t seek to lead people; they want to control them.

Saints, God is love. And even when He rebukes and corrects us, it’s because He loves us. May everything that you say and do for others be done with GRACE and LOVE. May God’s love shine through you always.

Have a wonderful weekend in Christ. God bless, and lots’a love,

Warren

P.S. I’ll be taking a break from Sunday, 26th March, to Sunday, 23rd April (4 weeks), and will spend some time overseas. Please keep me in your prayers as I spend some much-needed time with my family. I’ll start sending the dailies again on Monday, 24th of April. Thanks for your support and understanding.

THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH YOUR SPIRIT, BROTHERS AND SISTER. AMEN.

Love and Prayers for you all.
