Teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And you can be sure that I am always with you, to the very end [of the world].” Matthew 28:20 (NIRV) [read Matthew 28:16-20 (20)].

This is Matthew’s version of the last things Jesus said to the apostles before, per Luke 24:51, “he was carried up into heaven”. After all, Jesus told them earlier that “if I don’t go away, the Helper won’t come to you” (John 16:7 ISV). In fact, for the benefit of this lesson, I chose Matthew’s version because he was the only one to quote Jesus, saying he was always with them. For more details, please continue.

The Helper/Holy Spirit Is Always With You

There are other statements that Jesus made that we must include. The first is in John 14, Jesus tells the disciples that the Father will give them another Helper (KJV ‘comforter’), which is the Holy Spirit, to comfort them.

I will ask the Father to give you another Helper^, to be with you always. 17 He is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor recognizes him. But you recognize him, because he lives with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17 (ISV) [read John 14:15-18 (16-18)]

^ Helper is just one of the many terms used for the Holy Spirit. Here are some others, Comforter (KJV), Intercessor, Counselor, Friend, Encourager, and Advocate.

The second is also in John 14. Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown commentary – I will come to you—lit., “I am coming to you.” After Jesus told the disciples that the Spirit’s coming would be his coming to them, he told them that he would not leave them as orphans; he would father them.

I’m not going to forsake you like orphans. I will come back to you.” John 14:18 (ISV)

You’re never alone

And this is his commandment: We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he commanded us. 24 Those who obey God’s commandments remain in fellowship with him, and he with them. And we know he lives in us because the Spirit he gave us lives in us. 1 John 3:23-24 (NLT) [read 1 John 3:16-24 (23-24)].

If you are born again and are living a Christian life, God dwells in you, so He is with you at all times. So remember, you are never alone in the struggles of life. Your helper, comforter, intercessor, counselor, friend, encourager, and advocate, the Holy Spirit, is there with you. Learn to depend on Him and allow Him to comfort you during your struggles. You are never alone in the struggles of life!

Child of God, find comfort in knowing you are never alone! I pray that you have enjoyed and will make the most of this Bible snack. Blessings to you and your loved ones— Tim. ☺
