ANGLICAN DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL FOR NOVEMBER 15, 2022 (A PRAYERFUL SALUTATION!)
TOPIC : A PRAYERFUL SALUTATION
Read: 2 Thessalonians. 3:16-18(NKJV)
16. Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord [be] with you all.
17. The salutation of Paul with my own hand, which is a sign in every epistle; so I write.
18. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen.
STUDY: The content of this salutation is an expression of a father who wants his Children to experience God the same way he has experienced Him. Consider the content of the salutation: Peace from God by all means, the Lord be with you, the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you all (2 Thess. 3:16,18). The peace of God can calm them in the midst of challenges and assure them of the presence of God around them and by supernatural help which comes by grace that can surmount troubles and obtain good result in their endeavours. Paul released a salutation that was capable of bringing all round success.
As Christians, what are your prayers for others, especially those who look up to you? How graceful is the greeting that proceeds from your mouth? Your salutation and prayers can attract both the presence and the power of God that can transform the life of a person and reassure them of God’s grace in the midst of their challenges. Be conscious of this.
PRAYER: Lord please help me to be a source of lifting to others through my prayers and salutation. Amen.
