Here’s a beautiful commission and benediction by Bruce Prewer.
(based on John 14:2-3, Romans 8:31, Philippians 4:7)
If the God who raised Jesus from the dead is for us, who dare be against us?
We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
Step out into the world in humble confidence:
there is nothing about to happen that God has not foreseen,
and no situation where Christ will not be there ahead of you,
preparing a place and an opportunity for you.
Thanks be to God.
The peace of God, which goes beyond all understanding,
keep your hearts and minds
in the knowledge of God, and of Jesus Christ, God’s Son.
And the blessing of God all-loving,
the Creator, Redeemer and Counsellor,
will be with you now and always. Amen!
