A New Benediction

Re:Verse passage – 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5 (day two) May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ. vs. 5

Perhaps you have seen greetings and salutations taken from scripture that make their way into our Christian vernacular. Pastor Chris signs his emails with ‘grace and peace’ which is a phrase you will read in many of Paul’s letter. Verse 5 should perhaps become a benediction for believers as we communicate with one another. Our prayer should constantly be to help others know and experience the love of God. To walk in the knowledge that they were created and known by the creator of the universe. This blessing further admonishes them to be steadfast like Christ. To be true to the call; unswerving in devotion, and pure in intent. Let’s all learn this prayer, and begin blessing others with it.
