24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Verse 24 is the final benediction of Romans. The majority of Greek manuscripts include this verse, while the oldest manuscripts do not.
24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
This benediction confers grace on the entire church at Rome.
“Amen” means so be it. Paul was saying, “May it be true” that the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with them.
Grace is all that God is free to do for us because of the death of Christ.
Grace is a freeing concept for believers. Our acceptability to God does not rest on us but upon Jesus Christ. God is free to give us His divine operating assets because He is satisfied with what Christ has done for us.
