Benediction and Final Greetings
20 Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 21 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Saturday, October 31 - Hebrews 13:20-21May you know that God is the God of peace and that he offers that peace to you. You can trust this because God has been revealed to you in Jesus and nothing else, not even death, can change or take away the promise that Jesus has given you. Jesus is the great shepherd who will guide you and lead you, even when it seems you have lost your way. It just might be that Jesus was leading you to a place where you were lost enough to give up and let yourself be led. Jesus will equip you so that you will be able to do his will. He has promised to give you his Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will produce good fruit in you. God has and will continue to use you to do his will and bring about his kingdom. Therefore, give praise, honor, and thanks to Jesus, the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world forever and ever. Amen!
