A Year with Jesus—Day 18–I Am with You Always

A Year with Jesus—Day 18–I Am with You Always

Today we read Jesus’ final words from Matthew’s Gospel:  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.   Matthew 28:20

God is always with us.   Yesterday I had the opportunity to take communion to one of our senior saints at Trinity who was really hurting and sad.  This person was wondering where God was in all the pain they were going through.   It was my privilege to bring them Jesus’ body and blood and say, “He’s right here with you…Take and eat…take and drink…”

As I watched tears fall from this person’s eyes as they took tangible assurance of God’s presence into their body, I realized I was witnessing a holy moment where heaven invaded earth and God broke through.   Thank you Lord!

What about you?  Where is God today for you?  Take 60 seconds and just think on these words of our crucified and risen Lord:  “I am with you always.”
