"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever" (Hebrews 13:8)
There is a great deal of discussion now taking place about the lack of spiritual power in our Christian churches. What about the New Testament patterns?
Brethren, the apostolic method was to provide a foundation of good, sound biblical reasons for following the Saviour, for our willingness to let the Spirit of God display the great Christian virtues in our lives.
That is why we come in faith and rejoicing to the eternal verity of Hebrews 13:8: "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever!" This proclamation gives significance to every other section of teaching and exhortation in the letter to the Hebrews. In this verse is truth that is morally and spiritually dynamic if we will exercise the faith and the will to demonstrate it in our needy world.
I think this fact, this truth that Jesus Christ wants to be known in His church as the ever-living, never-changing Lord of all, could bring back again the power and testimony of the early church!
Lord, I pray for my pastor and my church, that they will comprehend anew the truth that You are ever-living and never-changing. Amen
