So often we give little heed to the closing portions of the epistles, especially as related to greetings, etc.
Yet, there is much to be gleaned.
What does the Spirit say to you here…
23 Peace be to the brothers, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love incorruptible.
Note to whom Paul was speaking.
To the brothers.
To all who love our Lord Jesus Christ...not just an acknowledgment. A love incorruptible.
Paul spoke some things over the brothers/all.
These things are from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
He spoke “peace”.
He spoke “love with faith”.
He spoke “grace be with...”.
Why do we not speak in this manner today?
Perhaps we should.
Let us release peace, love with faith, and grace to all who love.
May we do so in word and in deed.
...to the praise of the glory of His grace...
