 Romans 16:20 NIV

“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.”


-The Lord is the source of all peace and grace. Christ has finished it all and has conquered the power of death through His death and resurrection. Revelation 20:10 demonstrates how satan will be judged and he will be thrown into the lake of burning sulfur together with the beast and false prophets. Grace and peace of God therefore helps us to overcome every temptation and attack of the devil and it precipitates the light of God.


Paul in his letter’s beginnings by this phrase, grace and peace. Peter and John also continue in it. Grace and peace is not just a salutation but there is a sermon in every phrase. It is not just mere wordings but a demonstration of God’s power in the working and indwelling of our Triune God (2 Thessalonians 1:2-4). Grace is favor and kindness that we could never deserve. Peace is not only the absence of conflict but the presence of blessings and rest. In Exodus 33:14 the Lord says that, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest”. Peace is the presence of tranquility (Isaiah 26:3), order (1 Corinthians 14:33), fullness (Romans 15:13), completeness (Philippians 1:6), prosperity (Philippians 4:19), health and wellbeing (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Grace and peace of God have been provided to us through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and none has labored for it lest anyone should boast (Romans 5:1-2). Secondly, grace and peace are not static and can be multiplied. They also lead to an increase in the knowledge of God and the reverse is true (2 Peter 1:2). Thirdly, the grace and peace of God yields in us the gifts of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 1:3-7). Fourthly, the grace and peace of God enable us to give thanks to God in all situations (2 Thessalonians 1:2-4). Fifth, God gives us the grace to resist temptation’s and grants us a way of escape yielding peace (1 Corinthians 10:13).


Dear Lord Jesus we thank You for loving us. Thank You for You died on the cross to save us from everlasting torment and suffering. Thank You for the hope of glory that You have instilled in us even by marking our foreheads for we belong to You. Thank You for loving us our Prince of peace. May You forgive us all our trespasses and wash us with Your precious blood. May You bless us and give us rest in You in every sphere of our lives. We love You Lord, thank You for loving us first. May You bless us and keep us dear Lord Jesus. May You make Your face to shine towards us and be gracious unto us. May You turn Your countenance towards us and give us peace. Amen
