Just as a side note, I did a search for peace and grace on a Bible search engine. Interesting fact is that in the new testament letters, grace and peace were often the greetings. As an example, consider this:
To Titus, my true son in our common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.
I’m not really sure how to read this. Should I read it as if it says “I offer you grace and peace” as if grace and peace are nouns – things? Or should I read it as if grace and peace are the verbs – an action being done by the writer.
As we continue to look at grace and peace, I encourage you to consider the difference between grace and peace as things you can have, and things you can do.
