All the Days

"And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age" (Matt. 28:20).

The Gospel of Matthew concludes with the great promise of Jesus, "I am with you always."  But a literal translation would read, "I am with you all the days."

Remember that the crucified-risen Christ is with you on all the days through which you pass: Father's Day, graduation day, summer days, wedding day, happy days, sad days, typical day, hard day, hospital days, moving day, seven days, 365 days, last days (2 Tim. 3:1).  And the most important one to remember: today.

Know that He will be with you on the day of your death.  Psalm 23:4.

"I am with you all the days."  To this He adds "to the end of the age."  It almost sounds like then He will no longer be with us.  And that, I say, would be true.  For it is then that we will be with Him - forever - after He has safely brought us through all the days.
