Until the end of age... "...go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." -Matthew 28:19-20 God is constant. From the day you were born, to the day you breathe your last breath, Christ is with you in the Holy Spirit. That's even what Jesus said after he shared what is called the Great Commission. The very last thing he said is, "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." This vision, or knowledge that God is with us, is core to being a true believer and student of Jesus Christ. The vision or the understanding of Jesus always being with me is the idea that I'm constantly in company with him. It's hard to get to that place to know that Jesus is with me. Many of us are afraid to be alone and feel that sense of loneliness or despair. We're used to going to a friend, and that's not always so bad, but we're used to going to a person or television set, or to the Internet. Nonetheless, sometimes when we're completely alone, it may be the time God is going to reveal to us in a very dark time that we're not alone at all and that He's never left us. It may be, if you're willing to be open to it, the time when you feel the loneliest is the time you will get an overwhelming sense of God's love and presence. Prayer: Dear Lord, just knowing that you will be with me throughout my life on earth and through all eternity is the greatest blessing of my life. Amen.
