Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:1-2 Grace and peace; two things that Paul never let get too far away from his thinking or his actions. He had experienced both those things in abundance and wanted everyone under his influence to experience them, too. The value of peace is one of those things that’s almost immeasurable and there are always plenty of things in this life clamoring for our attention. Many of those things will, over time, steal away any peace you might have had…if you let them. But Paul had learned a very valuable secret; you can only experience the peace of God when you willingly encounter the God of peace.
