How Paul ended a letter

Colossians Bible Background

New Testament: Col 4.18

To read the Bible in a year, read Colossians 4 on October 12, In the year of our Lord Christ 2019

By Don Ruhl

Paul had a sight problem and dictated his letters, but he signed them to authenticate his letters. At the end of his letter to the Colossians, he ended with these words:

This salutation by my own hand—Paul. Remember my chains. Grace be with you. Amen.

– Colossians 4.18

After signing his name, he wanted them to remember him, and he wanted the best for them. “Amen,” was the best way to end that letter after those three brief sentences.


  • How do you want people to remember you?
  • Have you ever said for grace to be on someone?
