JESUS is Present
Jesus’ desire from the beginning of time is to be with you. He wants to be present in your everyday life, not just on special occasions. And He promises that you will never have to face life’s challenges alone. He will be with you.
The Gospel of Matthew opens with the announcement that Jesus Christ is called Immauel which means God with us. Then the last words of Jesus that Matthew records are;“Iam with you always, even to the end of the ages.” We discover that God’s desire since the beginning of time as been to be with humanity. He doesn’t want to be a distant thought or force. He says he is our“everpresent help in time of need.” Jesus is Present.
