Always

“and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matt. 28:20 (KJV)

Always. I’m guilty of misusing that silly adverb. Are you?

“Marie, you always forget to put my stuff back when you use it.”

“I always miss that exit and have to go five miles out of my way.”

I told my girlfriend at sixteen, “I’ll always love you, no matter what.”

“You always criticize everybody.”

But when Jesus tells us He will “be with us always”, it has an eternal ring to it. We can believe it because Jesus is Truth. He doesn’t just tell us the truth, or live out the truth. He IS TRUTH!

Jesus is always with us when He blesses us. He’s always with us when we’re walking in the spirit. He’s always with us when we’re walking in the flesh. He’s always with us when we’re obedient. He’s always with us when we’re disobedient. When we serve Him and when we sin.

And whether we’re walking in His will or walking through the valley of the shadow of death, we’re thankful and blessed that Jesus, now and forever, will “always be with us.”

  2. A very timely topic, as I have been having conversations with our sons about not using always in reference to what the other does or does not do that displeases them… Silly flawed humans that we are – oh, how thankful I am for His grace, ALWAYS! 🙂
