What does Galatians 6:18 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

The last verse of Paul's letter to the Galatians brings another benediction to the Galatians. It is somewhat standard in form, but it is meaningful. He prays that Christ's grace would be with their spirit, and he calls them his brothers. It's evident that the Galatian believers meant much to Paul. He cared about them deeply. He left them with one last reminder that God's grace through faith in Christ is the way to be justified. It is the truth that makes all who trust in Christ brothers and sisters: part of the family of God.
