Never Alone

You Are Never Alone

Read: John 14:15-21 |
Jesus is just as real today as He was when He walked on this earth. Even though He doesn’t move among us physically, by the Holy Spirit He is here, there, everywhere—a continuous, living presence—outside of us and inside of us.
That may be a terrifying thought for some. Perhaps you don’t like yourself, or you’re contemplating all the bad things you’ve done. Insecurity and sin can create a sense of fear, awkwardness, and clumsiness in Jesus’ presence. But think of what you know about Him.
Despite what you are or what you may have done,
 He loves you (Romans 5:8; 1 John 4:7-11).
 He will never leave you nor forsake you (John 14:18; Hebrews 13:5).
 Others may not think much of you or invite you to spend time with them, but Jesus does (Matthew 11:28).
 Others may not like the way you look, but He looks at your heart (1 Samuel 16:7; Luke 24:38).
 Others may think you’re a bother because you’re old and in the way, but He will love you to the end (Romans 8:35-39).
Jesus loves you in spite of all the conditions that cause others to turn away. He wants to change you to be like Him, He loves you as you are and will never abandon you. You are family; you will never, ever be alone. If you know Jesus, you’ll never walk alone.
