The Promise of Jesus
“Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be content with what you have; for he has said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.”
Famed 17th-century Theologian, Matthew Henry, says “The design of Christ is giving himself for us.” Christ is present in all that we do, think, and feel. A constant companion in times of bounty and scarcity. Never leaving our side or being absent. A personal gift that exceeds all that exists in the world. Far greater than the riches which can be earned or fame we acquire from others. Christ is there to follow and provide comfort. In the moments of our darkest hour, a simple gazing towards his presence calms our being. He is the Alpha and Omega of our lives, constantly in pursuit of helping our lives. We only have to turn our hearts to Jesus.
Points of Reflection
- How do we feel Jesus during our day?
- What gifts have we received from Jesus?
- Why does following Jesus provide us comfort?
Blessings, until next time,
