Sermons on Christian Life
“But you are those who have continued with Me in My trials.” It is surprising that Jesus should speak about his weak disciples in this way, shortly before they desert him in his hour of greatest need. We should be comforted by these generous words from the mouth of Christ.
It is both amazing and comforting that God thinks about us. His thoughts towards us are infinite, stretching back before the beginning of time. They are precious and gracious. They are also inescapable. There is no place we can go from his presence.
