“Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:20
06/16/09 Jesus is always with you. This is a promise of scripture. It is one of my favorite promises, in fact. But the question is: do I live my life in light of this promise? Sometimes, yes. Other times, no. Does the fact that Jesus is always with me keep me from lashing out at others in anger because He is present? Not always. Does the fact that Jesus is always with me keep me from doing things that I know are wrong? Nope. Does Jesus’ presence in my life keep me from falling into temptation? Not when I’m running straight for that pit because I can’t help myself. I’m not perfect. I’m far from it, in fact. But Jesus is perfect! And He helps me to improve on a daily basis if I will allow Him to. I want to honor His presence in my life. How about you? What will you do to honor Him?
