Benediction: Romans 8:31-32

(based on Romans 8:31-32)

If God is on our side, whom shall we fear?
If He did not spare His own Son,
but handed Him over on our account,
won’t He also graciously give us everything we need?
So go from here with joy,
confident in the knowledge that God goes with you.

(based on Romans 8:31-32, The Message)

As we leave this place of worship, remember this:
With God on our side, how can we lose?
If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us,
embracing our condition and exposing Himself to the worst
by sending his own Son,
is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us?
So go in confidence and hope,
knowing that God’s extravagant love goes with you.
