04 Nov They Needed Jesus, And We Need Him Too!
S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
Mark tells us that after Jesus ascended to the right hand of God and His disciples began their work, Jesus worked with them from heaven to help confirm His Word and also to work miracles, signs, and wonders through the disciples. This passage helps us to remember, “They Needed Jesus And We Need Him Too!”
This is such a simple thought. The disciples and all followers of Jesus still needed Jesus after He ascended into heaven. It wasn’t like, “Well He did His job, now we’ve got to do ours!” No! Concerning this same event, Matthew recalled that Jesus said, “I will be with you always until the end of the age!” (Mt. 28:20). It was never Jesus’ intent to leave us helpless after He ascended back to heaven. That’s why the Holy Spirit was sent. We’re never alone. This mission to reach the entire world with the “Good News” of Jesus is impossible unless He is with us. So from day one, “They Needed Jesus, And We Need Him Too!” We can never do this joyful mission without Jesus by our side.
I’m grateful this AM that You are with me. I’m so thankful that no matter how challenging life may be on this side of heaven, You will never leave me or forsake me. Amen
