Ephesians 6:24 (KJV) Do You Love the Lord?

Ephesians 6:24 (KJV)
Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen. To the Ephesians written from Rome, by Tychicus. 
What an interesting way to close this letter to the Ephesians. Albert Barnes says there could not have been a more appropriate way to close it.
The Word of God wishes grace upon those who not only claim to love Jesus but who love our Lord Jesus Christ with sincerity.
Two thousand years ago, just as today, there were those whose claim to love Christ was not
  • Sincere
  • Genuine and 
  • From the heart
For whatever reason there has always been those who have another motive for their professed faith in Christ. They have a love that is
  • Feigned
  • Unreal and 
  • Insincere
The importance of this is that the promise of grace from God only extends to those with sincere love for our Lord Jesus Christ.
It therefore behooves us to examine ourselves to be sure of that sincerity.
