Grace to Us is the Conclusion of the Bible

New JerusalemThe Bible concludes, “The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen.”

Grace is Jesus Christ Himself for us to love, value, appreciate, and enjoy. Grace came to mankind when God incarnated in Jesus. “Grace and reality came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17) This grace is much more than God doing us a favor.

This grace can be manifested through our enjoyment of Christ. By grace we are justified freely, we reign in life, we are gifted to participate in the functioning of His Body, we labor for the Lord, we give monetary gifts, we bear sufferings, we will display God’s surpassing riches of His grace, we sing to God, we receive eternal comfort and good hope, we are supplied with faith and love, and our hearts are confirmed.*

Revelation concludes, as many epistles open and conclude, with this wish of grace to all of us. Saints does not mean a few special people; it refers to all who believe into Christ Jesus (1 Cor. 1:2). This concluding blessing sums up the Lord’s desire to be our center and our enjoyment so that He could enliven us for the preparation of His bride and the coming of New Jerusalem.
