“I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Jesus’ last words
After Jesus’ ressurrection, He spent a short time with His disciples. However the time to leave had come. Jesus could have remained on earth with His new body, but He decided to leave the disciples and go back to Heaven. Had Jesus forsaken His disciples? We see the last words of Jesus.
always with us
Jesus went back up to Heaven, but He told His disciples that He will “always be with them”. Jesus had left the work of spreading the word of God to the disciples. He did not leave this up to us alone, but promised that He will help us through this work!
