Philippians 1:2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
“Grace” customary western (Gentile) greeting, “peace” customary eastern (Jewish) greeting. Combined a pledge of unity in the one Saviour. The new faith of Christ elevated a salutation to that of a beautiful benediction. Everything Jesus touched changed, be it a common name, a despised city, a felon’s cross, or lost sinner’s soul’s. Each receives the grace and peace of God almighty
