Galatians Devotional 1/3

Galatians 1:3
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I don’t know about you, but often when I start reading a new book in the bible, specifically some of the letters, I often skim over the initial greeting and jump straight into the meat. Just me?

But how wonderful to pause here and see the beauty of this opening prayer from Paul – that is not only relevant to the church in Galatia but to us as well…
GRACE and PEACE to you!

Be reminded today that this is God’s gift to us. God’s heart and desire is that we would know and be filled with His grace and peace.

Kris Langham said:
“Grace is God’s love without earning it, His peace without deserving it and His forgiveness without grovelling for it.”

My prayer for you today is that you would never forget the wonder of the grace & peace of Jesus.

(Note to self: Stop skimming over the greeting)
