Reflections on my walk with God

Grace

I’m still working my way through the NT though have slowed down considerably – work keeps interfering! My study Bible notes that Paul begins and ends each of his letters with “Grace”. A quick search on the Bible gateway concordance revealed that Grace appears 84 times in Paul’s letters.
So I thought I’d gather together the opening and closing verses of Paul’s letters.
