Jesus’ last words to His disciples before He ascended into heaven were:
I am with you always until the end of this world. (Mt 28:20)
Jesus gives us the assurance that He will be with us until the end of our time. So we should not be worrying because it is the Lord who has promised this to us. He is ever faithful, keeping His promises that never fail. We are already secure of His comforting words to be with Him.
Let us be reminded of His words so that we continue holding on and on, no matter what may happen in our lives. Let us always hold on to Christ because it is through His mercy and compassion, expressed in these words, that we do not feel alone or like an orphan. His encouraging words will accompany us to live this life full of hope, faith and love.
