2 Corinthians 13: 11-13

Final greetings

11 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.

12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. 13 All God’s people here send their greetings.

Lord Jesus Christ,

Who died to reconcile us to God

And to one another,

Forgive us for the petty differences

That break us apart

Even within Your Body,

Fractured in so many ways.

 

Lord, as You wept over Jerusalem

You must weep over Your broken church.

Send Your Spirit of redeeming Love 

to sweep away those chasms of division.

 

Teach us to be peacemakers

reaching out in grace and truth

To the ones we do not like

The ones we disagree with

The ones who have hurt us,

Till cross-shaped fellowship is restored among us.

 

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,

The love of God,

And the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen.
