Today’s passage:  “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Eph 1:2)

Devotional Thought:  Greeters and greetings…sometimes I think we take them for granted. We talk about greeting people in Christian love. “Grace and peace to you…”  We talk about greeting someone we don’t know. When was the last time you talked with someone you did not know.

Don’t look past the opportunity to shake someone’s hand, give them a hug, say hello with a warm and genuine smile. The church has to be about relationships…deep and long-lasting relationships. For some, this is super scary, for others it is not. No matter the nervousness, it is a powerful part of the local church becoming a close family and is proof to a distraught world that there is a place for them in God’s healing home.

“Grace and peace to you…” It can be a game-changer for anyone……..
