“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.”
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit!
In the Book of Exodus, we read the account of Moses’ amazing encounter with GOD on Mt. Sinai:
Early in the morning Moses went up Mount Sinai as the LORD had commanded him, taking along the two stone tablets.
Having come down in a cloud, the LORD stood with Moses there and proclaimed his name, “LORD.”
Thus the LORD passed before him and cried out, “The LORD, the LORD, a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity.”
Moses at once bowed down to the ground in worship. Then he said, “If I find favor with you, O Lord, do come along in our company. This is indeed a stiff-necked people; yet pardon our wickedness and sins, and receive us as your own.”
(SOURCE: EX 34:4B-6, 8-9)
Then in the New Testament, we read how the Father sent his Son into the world:
God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
(GOSPEL JN 3:16-18)
Sisters and Brothers, rejoice. Mend your ways, encourage one another, agree with one another, live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.
Glory to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; to God who is, who was, and who is to come.
