Matthew 28:20- Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
This passage of scripture is part of what is known as the "great commission".
The command given by Jesus after His resurrection to His 11 disciples to "go to all nations, baptizing, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.
Not only did Jesus give them a command to "go", but He promised to be with them forever, even unto the end.
Oh, what a promise! The presence of our everlasting Father, God with us wherever we go.
Jesus is promising us that distance nor location has anything to do with the promise of His everlasting presence to be with us. Wherever we go, He is there!
After His resurrection, Jesus declares to His disciples that all power in heaven and earth has been given unto Him, therefore, He can be everywhere at the same time. Do not try to figure this out, just believe what He says!
Those of us who have been called to take the Gospel message far or near, remember, that the ever presence God is with us. He promises to never leave us nor forsake us.
Psalm 34:15-The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry.
2 Chronicles 16:9a-For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.
Saints, guess what? We are never alone, for God is with us.
The call is to trust God and faithfully proclaim the Word of God with boldness, power and authority.
Jesus promises us on today Saints that He will be with us always, even unto the end.
We will never know His power until we have decided to do what He has commanded us to do and that is to "Go" in His name.
Remember, as you venture out to do the Lord's work on today, you are not alone for He declares to you and I that He is with us always, even unto the end.
Will you trust the Lord on today and get busy doing His work, knowing that He is right there with you? You are not a lone wolf. You have the presence of Almighty God with you by means of His Holy Spirit.
As you go out today, do not expect everyone to receive your message. Your call is to plant the seed.
To keep us from getting discourage on our journey of witnessing for Christ, The Apostle Paul reminds us of this one thing in 1 Corinthians 3:7-I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
With the ever presence of God with us, amazing and miraculous things will happen in and through us.
Jesus Himself declares in John 14:12b-Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do.
“Go, and I will go with you.” This is God's promise to His people on today.
Will you go? Guess what? If you do, you are not alone for God is with you.
A promise to never leave us. Oh, what a promise!
God bless and do tell the Lord than you for being your ever present help.
I love you all.
