Benediction: Colossians 3: 17

Here’s a benediction inspired by Colossians 3:17.  It comes from the Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, Kentucky.


A Benediction for work, rest, and celebration.

(inspired by Colossians 3:17)

When you work,
work as though worked for the Lord.

When you rest,
rest in the sovereign grace of God

And when you celebrate,
celebrate as a people with the greatest reason
for love, joy, and celebration.

Go now in the grace and forgiveness of our Savior,
and in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Peace be with you.
And also with you.
