That’s a very bold and defining statement! Who can say that? Who can believe that? Of all the leaders in the world jockeying for position and power, there is One Who has claimed ALL authority ... not just on earth, but in the universe. And for those seeking life on other planets as is in the news of late, He is claiming authority over that as well. Some say they don’t care or believe that Jesus is the only Way to God. Well, whether one believes water is wet or not still doesn’t change the fact that water IS definitely wet! I’m convinced anyone who adopts that kind of belief system has not trusted in the real fact that Jesus is Who He says He is. Jesus will always prove Himself faithful to those that completely trust Him.
The second part of that passage of scripture reminds us of another profound claim … ”I am with you ALWAYS.” Think about your personal struggles and victories. Difficulties are always easier to shoulder when sharing them with someone else. Victories are always sweeter when there is someone else to enjoy and celebrate with us. To those trusting in Christ, He is there. Period. Not just when we are good or in sync with Him … but all the time … even when our lows are the lowest. I don’t know about you, but I find real comfort and strength in knowing there is someone alongside me when I am fearful, facing a big challenge, or am simply trying to hang on. Jesus Christ is there because all authority is His. Nothing or nobody can change or alter that.
Now His ways are higher than our ways so we can’t expect our safety, health or our circumstances to always be as we would have designed. But we can trust in the sovereignty of God for the big picture and adopt the statement of Paul that “to live is Christ and to die is gain.” After all, to the believer He is our loving and caring Father; all authority is His, and He is always with us.
His authority is for all of heaven and all the earth. This means ALL people for which at some point in time will see that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He indeed is Lord. Right From The Heart seeks to communicate that very fact to people everywhere. By you receiving some form of this newsletter means you have an interest of some sort in this life changing message. If you have questions, call or email us or seek out one who does believe in this Jesus; if you understand and accept this Truth, share it with those whom you live, work or play. God, in Jesus Christ, is there. Count on it.
