The soon-to-be former Liberal leader conceded defeat to Labor’s Anthony Albanese on Saturday night – marking the end of his party’s nine-year reign.
On Sunday morning, Mr Morrison wiped away a tear while addressing the audience at Horizon Church in the Sutherland Shire, in Sydney’s south.
‘Whether you’re a prime minister, a pastor, running a business, teaching in schools, working in the police force, it doesn’t matter,’ he told the crowd.
‘We’re each called to trust and obey. And that’s the life of faith He calls us to. That’s how we live our faith each and every day, regardless of what your job is, and to express it in how you do that.’

To his fellow churchgoers, he said: ‘You’ve given us a great foundation from which we could walk what has been a very difficult walk, I’ve got to tell you, over the last four years.
‘I’m very pleased that the last thing I say as PM is here. So I’m not going to rely on my own words.’
Mr Morrison collected his thoughts before quoting a passage from Habakkuk 3:17.
‘Even if the fig tree does not blossom, and there is no fruit on the vines, if the yield of the olive fails and if the fields produce no food, even if the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls, yet I will triumph in the Lord,’ he read.
‘I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.’
