January 31

"I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you." John 14:18 (NIV)

This is a brief promise which our Lord gave His disciples the last night He was with them before He died on the cross. Some might say that Jesus meant that He would come back to His disciples after He arose from the grave. It is true that He did come back to them on several occasions between His resurrection and His ascension. Still I believe Jesus meant this promise to cover his concern for His disciples as well as for all his followers since then. He meant that He is with us today. He has not left us as orphans to shift for ourselves. Do you sometimes feel like an orphan? Be assured your Father is with you as well as Jesus your Savior, just as he promised.
