Blessing: Jude 24-25

Here’s the text of Jude 24-25 (CEB) broken into two parts for a responsive blessing at the conclusion of a worship service.  If preferred, the worship leader can simply read the full blessing.  This is a benediction suitable for about any occasion.  One special aspect of Jude’s blessing is that it includes both a blessing on God’s people (represented in the leader’s part below) and it bestows blessing on God (represented in the congregation’s part below).

Blessing: Jude 24-25

To the one who is able to protect you from falling, and to present you blameless and rejoicing before his glorious presence,

to the only God our savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, belong glory, majesty, power, and authority, before all time, now and forever. Amen.
