Daily Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries


February 15, 2008

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:20 (NIV)

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

The salvation story of Jesus Christ reaches around the world. So that the readers of our Daily Devotion may see the power of the Savior on a global scale, we have asked the volunteers of our International Ministry Centers to write our Friday devotions. We pray that the Spirit may touch your day through their words.

In Christ, I remain, His servant and yours,
Kenneth R. Klaus
Speaker of The Lutheran Hour

The editor of the television team and I were on our way to the monthly meeting. We chatted along the way. Among other issues, we talked about some TV programs that air “by sunset or early evening”.

As we arrived at the studios, I kept thinking, “Indeed, there is a moment in the day when we cannot say exactly if we are at the end of the afternoon or the beginning of the night. It’s indefinite. One step here, one step there, in the middle of both.

There are moments in our lives, also, that are indefinite. Is a relationship about to blossom or ready to end? Is your career about to take off or grind to a halt? Will it rain or just stay cloudy? Should I stay, or should I go? Will I make it through this problem, or will I fail?

In times like these, it is good to have a definite and safe place: with Christ! He is certainty, safety, and our sure guide for the future. In the moments when loneliness and undefined times come close, He is even closer. He took on human form and gave His life so we can live in the sureness of His presence and forgiveness.

In the indefinite moments of our lives, He gives us faith to put our trust in Him—a sure and steady Rock.

THE PRAYER:Heavenly Father, thank You for the assurance of Your love even when we are going through uncertain times. Amen.
