Read 2 Corinthians 13:11-13

11 And now, my brothers and sisters, goodbye! Strive for perfection; listen to my appeals; agree with one another; live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.
12 Greet one another with a holy kiss.
All God’s people send you their greetings.
13 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.


Paul writes to a church that has had some conflict.  He invites the people of the church to honour God by living in peace with one another.  He attaches God's presence with them to their commitment to living in peace.  In closing Paul prays that they would resemble the trinity in their community.  Full of the grace of Jesus Christ.  The love of God.  The fellowship of the Holy Spirit.


Help me to offer grace as Jesus offers me grace.  Help me to love like God loves.  And bind me to you in communion and fellowship through the power and presence of your Holy Spirit.
