A little boy had to miss church one day because he was sick. His mother stayed home with him while his father took the other children to church.
It happened to be Palm Sunday, and when the family returned home they were carrying palm branches that had been given to them at church. When the little boy asked about the branches, he was told, “People used them to greet Jesus as he passed by.”
“That’s just my luck!” the boy exclaimed. “The one Sunday I miss church, and Jesus shows up!”
Jesus promises to be with us always. Sometimes we have to be reminded that he is among us, whether we recognize his presence or not.
One of the best times to experience his presence is when we are worshipping with others who believe in him.
“…Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”—Matthew 28:20.
