Hebrews 13:20-21 is such an encouraging benediction --and this is my prayer for all of us this week:
"Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen."
This reminds us that:
--He is the God of peace --we can count on Him to give us His peace, no matter what our circumstances. (Philippians 4:6-7)
--His power is awesome and the same spirit that raised Christ from the dead shall quicken our mortal bodies, too! (Romans 8:11)
--He is our great Shepherd and we are His sheep! How comforting that should be to us; we're in His constant care. (John 10:11-14)
--It's all through the blood of the everlasting covenant: peace, joy, grace, hope, provision, and eternal life.
--He will make us complete in every good work to do His will if we will abide in Him. (John 15)
--He will work in us what is well pleasing in His sight. (Phil 2:13)
--And it's all through Jesus Christ to whom be glory forever and ever! Amen!
Let's remember this week that as we're working and ministering to our families, the Lord is working in us!
