The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. In these simple words Paul once more points the church to Jesus. He calls them to focus on the Lord. He directs them specifically to the grace of Jesus. Paul loves this church dearly, and he wants them to hear his heart for them. Why? He wants them to hear God’s heart for them. These final words are no exception. Here Paul ends the letter. It’s his gospel goodbye, farewell and amen.
