18 Jesus came and told his disciples,
"I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.
& make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.
And be sure of this:
I am with you always,
even to the end of the age."
Jesus spoke 4 operative words in this passage...
...a mandate for the disciples assembled with Him at the time...
...a mandate for each & every one of us ever since...
And He gave 1 simple promise, to them, & to us...
I am with you always.
There we have it.
