KEY VERSE: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
TEXT: Hebrews 13:1-8
1 Let brotherly love continue.
2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Nothing has remained constant all through the ages. Not even the earth has remained the same since its creation. Seasons have been known to change the nature and quality of things. This confirms the saying that the only thing permanent in life is change.
This, however, is not true concerning our Lord. Times and seasons may change but the Lord remains the same all through the ages. Because the Lord is unchanging, His promises and precepts for His people remain the same too. The desirability of marriage and family life is still the same. So is the purity and sanctity of its vows. The responsibilities of believers towards one another remains unchanging no matter what changes may take place in world economies and policies. Believers can also rest assured in the ever abiding presence of God, His protection and sufficiency irrespective of the troubles and fears in the world.
Since the Lord is unchanging, believers today ought not to worry about the different changes taking place in the world. Failing world economies, increased state of insecurity, the outbreak of strange diseases and infections, the rapid increase of knowledge, etc., should not undermine the faith of the believer at all. God’s word and power are still much relevant and at work even in these last days.
Moreover, the Christian faith, beliefs and hope are not getting out of circulation or becoming irrelevant; rather, Christianity is more relevant today than ever before. This is because after this world has faded away, all kingdoms collapse and knowledge fail, the Lord Jesus Christ with His redeemed Church will ever remain the same.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Jesus is the same as ever.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 30-33
