Christ is Unchanging

 ”Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Heb. 13:8)

Things Change:

I used to believe the world changed from day to day… now it seems like it changes from minute to minute. Because of this, insecurity is a feeling that overwhelms many people. For the Christian, security is not to be found in the world or the events taking place around us. Our security comes from knowing that we belong to Jesus Christ and that He never changes! Though the world may change, I can be assured of one thing. Jesus will be the same today as He was yesterday, and He will be the same tomorrow as He is today.

His Love is Unchanging:

His acceptance of me will not change. And his faithfulness to me will not change. I do not need to worry about tomorrow, because He has tomorrow already in focus (Mt. 6:25-32). Although I cannot calculate the changes around me, His knowledge is without limit and He is undaunted by the surprises that arise.

Love Secures My Trust:

It is important to understand that God’s love is eternal and that Jesus came to Earth to offer salvation based on love alone. Its the love of God which serves as the basis for all His actions toward us. This is why the Apostle John said, “In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation (visible substitute) for our sins.” (1 Jn. 4:10)

The love that has already been made available and accessible to me through the cross, affirms His consistent grace and power for my future. His faithfulness is unchanging and I can trust Him for everything. I have a testimony of what He has done and what He will do in the future. Nothing should shake my faith, unless I forget His Promises or focus on my looming troubles. 

The Key - I Know Him!

If you are feeling insecure, then it is all about your focus. Are you looking to the world for your security?  If so, you will never find it. Place your trust in Jesus Christ and build a relationship with Him. Your soul will experience all the security it longs for. You will find Him dependable and steadfast. In spite of our changing world Jesus Christ will be the same, forever!
