May 11: always (2 Samuel 19-20; Psalm 55; Matthew 28)

What does it mean to you to be on the receiving end of always? The gospel of Matthew concludes with a promise that God first delivered in chapter one when God entered the world as Emmanuel – God with us. The final verse of the gospel renews the promise: I will be with you always.

Always means even when I don’t know for sure, even when I forget, even when the evidence would seem to suggest otherwise. Always means all ways, all time. And it is an unconditional commitment. The resurrection has proved the final word is not death, it is hope grounded in this single promise – always.

 

Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you (vs 22). Always…
