A Blessing From 1 John 4:7-12

Over the last six months as I have moved back into a settled Parish ministry and a more formal worship setting I have found myself looking at different passages of scripture to use as Blessings at the end of the services.

As God's people I believe that a congregation does not need someone up the front simply praying a blessing on them but as God's Spirited people, a priesthood of all believers and as fellow ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ we should pray a blessing on each other. For the services in October we've been using a blessing based on 1 John 4:7-12.

Dear friends

Go from here knowing you are loved

 God first loved us

God’s Son has redeemed us

God’s Spirit is within us

And let us go

Showing that love

That the world may know God’s love
