Peace (Eph. 6:23)

“Peace be

To the whole brotherly community!

Love with faith,

From God

The Father,

And the Lord

Jesus Christ.”

Εἰρήνη τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς καὶ ἀγάπη μετὰ πίστεως ἀπὸ Θεοῦ Πατρὸς καὶ Κυρίου Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ.

Paul said, “Peace (Εἰρήνη) be to the whole brotherly community (τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς)!  Love (καὶ ἀγάπη) with faith (μετὰ πίστεως), from God (ἀπὸ Θεοῦ) the Father (Πατρὸς), and the Lord (καὶ Κυρίου) Jesus Christ (Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ).”  Paul then gave his final blessing.  He wanted them to live in peace in their loving brotherly community in Ephesus.  He was sending them love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  Thus, Paul left them with the three main themes of peace, love, and faith from God and Jesus Christ.  Is peace, love, and faith part of your life?
