2 Corinthians 13:14
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

i. The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you.

2 Timothy 4:22

j. Grace be with you all

Titus 3:15
Everyone with me sends you greetings. Greet those who love us in the faith.
Grace be with you all.

(See also Hebrews 13:25)

k. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.

Revelation 22:21
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.

We can see that there are eleven different farewell greetings. The recipients of two of these greetings are described – ‘those who love the Lord’ and ‘God’s people’. Peter instructs us to ‘grow in grace’ – to allow more of God’s undeserved love to live in us and to flow through us.
