Daily Bible Reading: Matthew 28:1 – 20
Verse of the Day: Matthew 28:19 – 20 – “Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”
The Great Commission. Given by Jesus to His Body of believers. Go. Make disciples. Baptize. Teach.
Today, let us focus on the last part – “I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Have you considered that Matthew starts in chapter 1 telling us that Jesus is to be “Immanuel” – God with us. And here he ends his redemptive biography of Jesus with His promise to be Immanuel always. He will never leave us nor forsake us. Always there – in good times and bad. Always there when we are doing right – and wrong.
Prayer: Jesus, thank You for the promise that we can hold to at all times. You are truly Immanuel in our lives. Knowing You are with me all the time gives peace and confidence.
