“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations… And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”Matthew 28:19-20
Jesus has given us a job to do. We are not left on earth solely to enjoy the benefits of our relationship with Him. He asks us to always be serving Him, spreading the good news of salvation throughout our planet.
Some of us who are more mobile can go to the far reaches of the earth. Others of us will tell the gospel right here at home. As we fulfill the varied expressions of this mission, we experience Jesus’ promise that He will be with us every step of the way. Whether this means we are off to Kazakhstan, or Kalamazoo, or the Circle K across the street, we are in the circumference of His promised presence.
The way that you carry Christ to others may change dramatically throughout the course of your life. Yet every part of you—time, resources, talents, desires—can be used for the furthering of the gospel message. All of your prayer interests and delights of your heart are related to Christ’s kingdom.
Whether you go far away or never leave your town, you have the personal presence of your Savior traveling with you.
Ask the Lord to make the spread of His gospel a high priority in your life. You’ll know Him as your traveling companion when you do!
