"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
When I read these verses today, I am reminded of the comfort and fellowship we all experience with our church families. Jesus asks us to go out and spread the good news. When we follow Jesus, we know we have been promised eternal life with him. And He never leaves us. But we also have the comfort and fellowship of all those who follow Christ alongside us. When we have a church family, we are not alone in this world. We have friends and support. And of course, we have Jesus!
Father God, I thank you for my church family. Strengthen us so that we may bring more of your creation to know you. We need never feel lonely for too long. Amen
