This week is the final line of our Lord’s Prayer (note: NOT the final week of the sermon series… hahahaha!!!) We’ll be looking at: “For thine is the kingdom, the glory, and the honor forever. Amen.”

What does this statement (which is not scriptural, but a blessing/benediction the early church added when the prayer became part of corporate worship) mean to you? Does it make a difference to you that it is not directly scriptural (i.e. Jesus didn’t say it just as it is written)?

What other scriptures does this remind you of?

I’m thinking about the three elements of the benediction: God’s Beloved Community, God’s energy or capacity, and God’s grandeur and beauty. What do those mean when we proclaim them as being “forever and ever?”

Your input is deeply appreciated.

God’s Grace Is Abundant!
