Our oldest son, JJ, has been working on memorizing the Great Commission. Jesus speaks this to the disciples (and the entire church) in Matthew 28:18-20. As I have been helping him be able to quote it from memory, the beginning and the end of it has really been a blessing to me.
Notice what Jesus says
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me…
…And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
What strength and confidence there is for those who believe Jesus. Strength for today. The one who has absolute sovereign authority and lordship over all encourages us and strengthens us by assuring us that He is with us always until the end.
