Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. – Hebrews 13:8
We are obviously in a world of constant change. Changes to our routines, to our freedoms and to our access to life as we know it. Challenges, struggles and suffering invade our communities, our churches, our workplaces and our families. These are trying times. Nothing was the same yesterday and nothing will be the same tomorrow. Except Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Our clients and communities need tangible help and resources now more than ever before. These needs are constant opportunities to show and express God’s practical love. However, what is also needed more than ever before is hope. A hope that is not just based on “what if” or “maybe someday,” but a hope that is anchored in something unshakeable. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
My prayer is that we will stay encouraged by this simple but game-changing truth. His goodness, love, grace, forgiveness, justice, mercy, protection and compassion will not change. He will never change.
