The Great Commission - Matthew 28:18-20

This “thin place” seems to prepare us to be alone. Jesus is about to ascend from earth to his heavenly throne. He is fine. Really, he is more than fine. He has conquered death and inhabits a resurrection body. All is well with Jesus. But what about us? He is not leaving us alone to fend for ourselves. Remember his final words: “And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (28:20).

On this final day of 2013, give thanks for what he has in store for us in 2014.
