The Apostle Paul concluded his final letter with messages to and about his colleagues and friends. Within these personal remarks, Alistair Begg identifies three principles we can apply today: the ordinary experiences of our lives are vehicles for God’s Providence; believers need gospel partnerships to grow in their faith and to function as a local congregation; and when in God’s time we are separated from our brethren, we do so graciously and with grace.
19Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus. 20Erastus remained at Corinth, and I left Trophimus, who was ill, at Miletus. 21Do your best to come before winter. Eubulus sends greetings to you, as do Pudens and Linus and Claudia and all the brothers.3
22The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you.4
