Jesus Alive, Now and Forever!
Scripture reading for February 7th: Matthew 28, Psalm 28, Proverbs 28
Key Scriptures: Matthew 28:17-20 “And when they saw Him they worshiped Him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.””
Matthew records Jesus’ final words to His remaining eleven disciples. This instruction is known as the “great commission” and is really a continuation of Jesus’ mission to seek and save lost people. Jesus will now complete His mission through those who worship Him and keep faith in His death and resurrection. Jesus promises to be with them always, in every place and circumstance, right up until He returns!
Faith’s confession: Lord Jesus, I believe in Your coming to earth as a man, Your sacrificial death, and Your amazing resurrection from the dead, crowned with all authority in heaven and earth. Help me to obey Your instructions as I know that You are with me always! Amen! Action step: Ask the Lord to give you opportunity to share the Gospel with someone or show the love of Jesus to an unbeliever.
Psalm 28:8-9 “The Lord is the strength of His people; He is the saving refuge of His Anointed. Oh, save Your people and bless Your heritage! Be their Shepherd and carry them forever.”
