Commission and Benediction
(inspired by Galatians 2:15-21)

When you go out into this world to serve God’s mission,
remember that it is no longer you who live,
but Christ who lives in you. 
The life you now live in the flesh
you live by faith in the Son of God
who loves you and gave himself for you. 

May the grace of God which daily renews us,
and the love of Jesus that enables us to love all others,
and the community of the Holy Spirit that unites us into one body
enable and empower us to obey the will of God,
now and forever; Amen.
