Bene-diction, meaning "good saying."

Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.  Amen. --Hebrews 13:20,21 TNIV
The last words of the Letter to the Hebrews are words of encouragement, exhortation, a slap on the back, and a firm prod, a benediction.  Yet note the substance, the stuff of this exhortation, that we carry on in faithfulness.

What if every moment of this day, we had a cheerleading section accompanying us, cheering us on in faithfulness?  It would be like the home team cheering on their team.  We have just that, the Holy Spirit goes with us this very day, this very moment, cheering us on, shouting the good saying to us, the benediction.
