May the Fourth be with you

Star Wars fans introduced an unofficial 'Star Wars Day' on the 4th May many years ago. To mark this day, fans use the catchphrase 'May the Fourth be with you', as it has an obvious link to the famous line from the movies - 'may the Force be with you!'

This reminds me a lot of the greeting that Christians give to each other in our gatherings. We often conclude our time together by passing on a blessing. These words have their origins in the letters of Paul.

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

Philippians 4:23 - May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.

2 Timothy 4:22 - May the Lord be with your spirit. And may his grace be with all of you.

So, as you go about your tasks today, I pray that the 'Lord would be with you.' 
And if you are a Star Wars fan, may the force also be with you :)

Living in Grace
