The other night, we had an opportunity to spend some time with friends who are serving in China. I was encouraged by something the woman shared.
She said God will not abandon us because He has invested so much in adopting us as His children. What a great thought. That is the gospel.
Jesus has also told us He will not abandon us. In Deuteronmy 31:6 and Hebrews 13:5 , He tells us, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you”.
Jesus tells us, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matt. 28:20).
And finally, Christ is the Author and Perfector of our faith. No matter what we feel about Him, His work isn’t complete until we are safely home. You and I may not see it now, but our God is a God who loves us with His life.
