As Jesus’ earthly life and ministry was ending, he prayed to the Father for those who had been entrusted to him, “I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost…” They could have wandered but he cared for and protected them to the end.
We as Christ followers are charged with caring for one another and we are not to leave even one person behind. We will guard them, guide them, carry them, love them, pray for them and pursue them to the very end. No man will be left behind.
