Paul’s greeting to the church follows a fairly common format, yet it is infused with so much more hope than the basic cordial greeting. Grace to you—and peace. The gospel encapsulated. In and through relationship with Jesus we have received true and sufficient grace. The only grace that ultimately leads to peace, true peace—shalom: contentment, completeness, wholeness and blessing.

Read Philippians 1:1-2.

Remember that the gospel we live, represent and share is the path, the only path, to shalom. What does mean to how we live as gospel people?
