“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8Text — Hebrews 13:5-8
In a troublous and fast-changing world that goes from one crisis to another, nothing seems permanent. However, Hebrews 13:8 gives us a statement of faith that has been a source of strength and encouragement for Christians in every generation. Through all the changes in the society around us, Jesus Christ changes not, He is ever the same. His power cannot diminish, His love never fails, His mercies endure forever.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday because He was active in creation. He was the Spoken Word through whom all things were created and sustained. Jesus Christ is the same today because as the obedient son, He came to earth in the likeness of men. He suffered, died and shed His blood to cleanse us from our sins. Jesus Christ offers salvation to everyone who calls upon His name. He is the very image of the Invisible God. Jesus Christ is the same forever, reigning in glory at the right hand of the Father in heaven. Jesus Christ is always the same. Whatever circumstance we find ourselves, we come to experience that what He has done for us, even for one moment in the past, He will do every day and every time because He is always the same yesterday, today and forever.
Prayer for today
Lord Jesus, be my Lord and Master forever.
