Grace to You and Peace from God

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, through the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as the sufferings of Messiah abound to us, even so our comfort also abounds through Messiah. 6 But if we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation. If we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer. 7 Our hope for you is steadfast, knowing that, since you are partakers of the sufferings, so you are also of the comfort. (Paul) 2 Corinthians 1:2-7 WMB

Grace is the key-note of the Gospel; and peace/shalom, the traditional and beautiful salutation of the East, on Christian lips signifies not earthly peace merely, but the peace of God. Kretzmann

4Keep on rejoicing in the Lord at all times. I will say it again: Keep on rejoicing! 5Let your gracious attitude/spirit be known to all people. The Lord is near: 6Never worry about anything. Instead, in every situation let your petitions be made known to God through prayers and requests, with thanksgiving. 7Then God’s peace, which goes far beyond anything we can imagine, will guard your hearts and minds in union with the Messiah Jesus.

8Finally, brothers/and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is fair, whatever is pure, whatever is acceptable, whatever is commendable, if there is anything of excellence and if there is anything praiseworthy—keep thinking about these things. 9Likewise, keep practicing these things: what you have learned, received, heard, and and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you. (Paul) Philippians 4:4-9
