10 Christian Sayings To Close A Letter Or Email

by David Peach · Print Print · Email Email

I love reading old letters and seeing how people of years gone by opened and closed their letters. They usually introduced the letter with gentleness and closed it either very businesslike or very personally. It seemed like there was no casualness in the way they wrote; everything was intentional.

Here are some suggestions for how to close a letter that can be used as a testimony for what the Lord has done in your life or as a witness for what the Lord can do in the lives of others. These can be part of your email signature so that everyone gets the same closing statement. Or, you can close your correspondence with an appropriately chosen saying or Bible verse.

Short Sayings

In His grip,

In the grip of grace,

May grace and blessings be in your path,

In Christian love,

Because of Calvary,

Bible Verses

You can use some of these phrases to be a testimony to others about what the Lord means to you.

Some Bible verses seem very appropriate for closing a letter or email. Here are a few that you can consider.

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. –Numbers 6:24-26

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. –Philippians 4:8

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. –1 Corinthians 10:31

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. –Romans 8:1

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. –1 Corinthians 1:3

Part of my work as a director with my mission organization is that I correspond with people from many different nations. One thing I enjoy is how some will open and close their emails with praise to God or a Bible verse. Particularly my African friends are very careful to give praise to the Lord before closing a letter. It is a great reminder to me to include the Lord in everything I do, even if it is something as simple as an email.

You can use some of these phrases to be a testimony to others about what the Lord means to you.

Maybe you already use some saying or Bible verse when closing your emails or letters. Please leave a comment below and share with us your favorites.

I love the closing of letters, emails, etc. “Forever His” because I am firm in my faith and He has captured my heart.


Janet Arce May 31, 2017 at 11:02 am

My Grandfather and Uncle, used to end their letters to me:
Love in Jesus

I always thought that they were disappointed in me,and they could only love me as a human being through Jesus.
It was very hurtful growing up to say the least.


Pamela Rose Williams May 31, 2017 at 1:04 pm

Hello Janet,

I am so sorry to hear that you were offended and hurt by how your Grandfather and Uncle closed their letters to you. I want to encourage you in the fact that the only way they could truly love any human is through Jesus. I say this because the Bible teaches us that when we believe in what Jesus did for us (died on the cross at Calvary in our place, to save us from certain death), then God gives us the Holy Spirit to guide us through life. Part of that gift is the fruit that only the Holy Spirit can bear and we read about that in Galatians 5:23-24 where it says “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

So you see, if they loved Jesus and had accepted Him as their Savior, the love they had for you was a very, very special love that comes only from the Holy Spirit. I would say that is nothing at all to be disappointed in. No! quite the contrary. I pray you know the love of Jesus and that He floods your soul like no One on earth can.

When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.


Jason E. Royle October 16, 2018 at 6:13 pm
