As we look back at the Reformers this month, can we help noticing how faithful the Lord was in helping them proclaim the Gospel? For that matter, can we look back further to see His faithfulness to the apostles? To the Old Testament prophets? To all who trusted in Him?
Observing how the Lord has cared for his own throughout history gives us hope that He will continue caring for us. And that care goes well beyond this earthly life, extending into eternity!
This week’s hymn commemorates God’s faithfulness to our spiritual fathers and anticipates that He will show us that same faithfulness. In this wonderful month of celebrating 500 years of reform, let’s treasure the promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us.
