This is a transcript of Scott Morrison’s last public words as Prime Minister, delivered yesterday at his local Pentecostal church, the Horizon Church.

In the last election, we really understood that it was for a time like this.

And now, as we know, it was for a time like that.

God calls us, whether you are a prime minister or a pastor, have a business, teach in schools, work in the police, it does not matter. Each of us is called to trust and obey and that is the life of faithfulness. He calls us to, and this is how we live our faith every day, regardless of what his work is, and express it through how he does it.

I am very happy that the last thing I say as Prime Minister is here. So I’m not going to trust my own words. (Morrison now reads from his mobile phone.)

Habakkuk 3:17-18

Although the fig tree does not blossom, and there is no fruit on the vines, although the olive tree lacks fruit, and the fields do not produce food, although the sheep disappear from the fold, and there are no cattle in the stables. However, I will triumph for the Lord, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation!

Micah 7:15

Like the day you came out of the land of Egypt, I will show you miracles.

Micah 7:7-8

But as for me, I will be alert for the Lord. I will hope in the God of my salvation. My God will hear me. Do not rejoice over me, my enemy. Even if I fall, I will get up. Although I live in darkness, the Lord is a light to me.

May God bless Australia. May God bless our community and may God continue to show his favor to this wonderful church family.
