Month of Thanksgivings
This morning, I want to reflect upon being “thankful” for the precious promise found in the Book Of Hebrews, chapter thirteen, verse eight, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” (KJV).
Oh, my dear friend, isn’t it wonderful to know that in an ever-changing world, an ever-changing society, and an ever-changing environment that there is ONE who we can count on to never, never change? Jesus Christ, our blessed Redeemer! The Blessed Rock of Ages! Amen.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t do “change” very well at times. As we all know, human beings can become “creatures of habit.” But, as much as we would like everything to remain the same around us….it just doesn’t happen that way. God never ordained it to happen!
Ever since mankind was exiled from the perfect dew-dripping foliage of the Garden of Eden, our environment continues to change; practically on a daily …hour by hour basis. Yet; amongst all the changes that surround our lives each day…Nothing….Nothing…Nothing changes God’s Love for us through Christ Jesus. This is an assurance that both you and I can “take to the bank,” as the old adage goes!
But, it’s more than just “taking a promise to the bank.” It’s the permanency of an all-knowing, ever-present Lord and Savior who will be there with us until the end (Matthew 28:20…Lo, I am with you always, even until the end.” KJV). After all, the number one basic need in every human beings’ life is to be LOVED. And, we can only find true, authentic, ever-lasting, fulfilling Love in Christ Jesus. God is LOVE!
I don’t know about you, but I am so, so thankful that my God changes NOT! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever more. No matter how many SmartPhones engineers continue to come up with; no matter how many vehicles auto- manufactures design (that will possibly one day get up to 100 miles to a gallon!); no matter how many cutting-edge procedures, technologies, and discoveries the medical and pharmaceutical industries create or discover….None can ever, ever, change or replace the everlasting, eternal LOVE of GOD! (John 3:16)
Yes; there is a promise that won’t be nor can ever be broken. A promise that is so secured that God, himself, was willing to live for and die for “it” in the manifestation of His own son Jesus Christ; a promise that was powerful enough to raise Jesus from the grave….and powerful enough to take me right on to Glory when I leave this old walk of life….The promise of an UNCHANGING LOVE found in Jesus Christ…the same yesterday, today, and forever! Amen. Want you join me today in thanking God through Christ Jesus for such a wonderful promise!
Remember, God Loves You!
