Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand, the son of man you have raised up for yourself.
Quick Sunday School quiz here. Even though this is the Old Testament, who is the author speaking about here? The answer (as it usually is in Sunday School): Jesus.
The point I’d like to draw out of this is that Jesus is present throughout scripture, not just in the Gospels. He is mentioned in the fall of man as the one that will crush the serpent. He is foretold in countless ways in the Old Testament (ok, several people have counted the ways, but I can’t think of the number off the top of my head). And if you are looking for him in the end times (Revelations for example), he’ll be the one holding the sword.
He is forever at the right hand of God with God’s hand on him. And he is forever in the hearts of believers in the form of the Holy Spirit. Of course you probably know all this and could recite it in any Sunday School class. But it never hurts to take a moment to reflect on it and meditate on what it means specifically to you.
Jesus never leaves your side. He is always there to catch you when you fall. You will fall from time to time, but he keeps you from falling too far and picks you up and puts you on your feet again and again.
Praise the Lord. Praise Jesus.
