Jesus The Same

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)

Jesus is our only reference point for true manhood, righteousness, holiness, wisdom, and love. He alone is without sin, thus He alone can afford to remain the same - yesterday, today and forever. We find our assurance in Him, His promises, His sacrifice, His death, His resurrection, His relationship to the Father, His Holy Spirit, His promises, and His Word. The fact that He will never change is the Solid Rock of our salvation, and we have confidence that allows us to walk boldly before God and men, with never a hint of compromise or fear. 

When Adam and Eve sinned, they created a great chasm between God and man, between heaven and earth, and between the spiritual and natural realm. Even the ground was cursed for man's sake, and that which God created "good" suffered because of Adam's sin. The eternal Son of God (the second Adam) took on flesh and came to earth at the appointed time, and in Him eternity and history are reconciled. His broken body is the door to heaven for those who believe, and His shed blood cleanses us for the Spirit's abiding presence. He will never leave or forsake us; and when our time on earth is done, He will take us to the  place He has prepared for the righteous, and we will live with Him forever. Yes, He is God of our past, present, and future - yesterday, today, and forever. That is what it means to be His, and that is why we walk in confidence and perfect peace. Amen. 

Let's Pray - Father God, I have found my very identity in Jesus, and in Him alone. Thank you for surrounding me with Your grace and the knowledge of Your love for me. Amen.
