10/4/16 Parting Words

“As I close this letter, I send with it the greetings of all the churches of Asia.  Aquila and Priscilla, your brother and sister from Corinth who are with us here, together with their house church here in Ephesus, and all the brothers and sisters, also send greetings.  Please, when you greet each other, use the customary kiss on the cheek, but remember that when you do this you are going beyond the usual custom to a spiritual level, and so it is a Holy kiss.  I write the concluding words of this letter and sign it with my own hand, Paul’s.  Test yourselves and see if you truly are devoted to Jesus.  If anyone is not devoted to Him, let that person be considered condemned.  Jesus may return at any moment, so live in expectation of that moment.  And now, may the grace of our Messiah, Jesus, be with you, just as my love is with you all in Him.  Amen.”
