Advent Benediction: Tomorrow's People


Here’s an Advent benediction from Bruce Prewer’s Home Page. 

Advent Benediction
(inspired by 1 Peter 4:5, Hebrews 13:8)

There is a world out there that is oversupplied with theories and technology,
but drastically undersupplied with hope.
You however, like Christ, are tomorrow’s people,
those who know the future is pregnant with promise and hope.

This same Jesus comes again with glory,
to judge the living and the dead.

Go and live out your hope graciously and courageously.

This same Jesus comes again with glory,
to judge the living and the dead.

The grace of Christ Jesus who is the same today, yesterday and forever,
will lead you to the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
and then take you on to those tasks and joys
which will prepare you for the greater glory which is to come.
Amen!
