“And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:20


No matter where your life is right now, Jesus is reminding you that he is with you always, and always means forever. Another way of thinking about the incredible love that Jesus has for you is just knowing Jesus will always “be there” for you. There was a time in my life that I felt alone and totally going in the wrong direction. Along the path I was on there was a person who handed me a Bible, which I promptly put on a table, left unopened and forgotten. But God had other ideas; the One who promised to be with me always somehow led me to open this little green book and immediately I turned to Matthew 28:20. I was reminded that night that the One who “neither slumbers nor sleeps,” (Ps. 121) had no intention of ever leaving me alone.  So here is the really Good News; Jesus is there for you, no matter what, no matter when, no matter why. When you feel down, remember Jesus is with you. When you feel alone, remember the Creator of the Universe sent his only Son to you and for you, especially you at this very moment.  You are loved by God and that loves comes with an eternal promise that will never be broken; “I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
