Paul lovingly concluded his letter to the Corinthians with greetings that broadened their perspective, deepened their sense of partnership, and reminded them of the wonder of belonging to God’s family. Warning against hypocrisy, he urged them to focus on grace as they awaited the Lord’s return. As Alistair Begg closes this series, he reminds us that in Christ, we are part of something far bigger than ourselves: God’s heavenly family and sovereign plan.
19The churches of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Prisca, together with the church in their house, send you hearty greetings in the Lord. 20All the brothers send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
21I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. 22If anyone has no love for the Lord, let him be accursed. Our Lord, come!5 23The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you. 24My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
