2 … Grace to you and peace from God our Father (Colossians 1).
I hesitated at first to isolate this phrase, thinking Paul’s salutation might be worn and overused. But then I thought perhaps we foolishly brush it aside much like a child does her doting mother’s kisses. The truth is, we can never have too much “grace … and peace from God our Father” through our Lord Jesus Christ.
We will all need to draw from the river of grace today, likewise, we will all benefit from basking in the waters of God’s peace—for we can never experience too much of either. By God’s grace we have His peace, and then that peace slows down our hectic lives so that we can notice His grace.
Lord, we all needed to see this salutation once again. Help us This Day to walk in Your grace and peace. Amen.
