The Grace of God
15 Everyone with me sends you greetings. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Titus 3:15
Paul closed out his letter his letter to Titus with a small blessing. He had an entourage with him, probably working as assistants handling tasks and keeping Paul up to date on events and church details. Type A visionary personalities need people to get the job done. They are unsung heroes that make the personality look good. I canít know for sure but this is probably how Paul operated. And Paul was clearly a Type A personality.
Even though Paul wrote his short benediction, he was probably constantly praying for Titus and his ministry. Paul knew firsthand the power of Godís grace in the life of a Believer. Iím sure he knew of thousands who experienced this grace. Again, itís a subtle and easy-to-miss blessing, but praying Godís grace and mercy over someone life can have a powerful effect. First, it encourages the recipient that youíre praying for them. Everyone needs to know that. Next, we all know the power of Godís grace in our lives. We all need His grace even if we think we have it all together. Lastly, it gives you a chance to bless people with a prayer. Some may not even know youíve prayed for that, and thatís okay too. It doesnít make the prayer less powerful. It just makes it more fulfilling to see it answered, even though we may not ever know how it was specifically answered.
