I am with you always, even to the end of the age. — Matthew 28:20
When David Livingstone returned to his native Scotland after sixteen difficult years as a missionary and explorer in Africa, his body was emaciated by the ravages of some twenty-seven fevers that had coursed through his veins during the years of his service. His left arm hung useless at his side, the result of his being mangled by a lion.
Speaking to the students at Glasgow University, he said, “Shall I tell you what sustained me during the hardship and loneliness of my exile? It was Christ’s promise, ‘Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’”
That promise is ours as well.
No matter what trials we face, Christ never leaves us. He is with us every step of the way!
Keep that promise before you today—and always.
