Dear Church Family,
I’m not a big Bob Dylan fan but in 1964 he wrote a song entitled, “Times They Are A-Changin.” We are experiencing many changes. As I write this, one of the biggest changes that is occurring is that our country is preparing for a change in administration. By the time you read this, we will have a new president and several new elected senators and representatives. In the months and years to come, we are sure to experience changes that will affect our daily lives. You’ve heard it said that change is the only constant. This is true for everything except God. The Bible says in Psalm 102:25-27,
“Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you endure; they will all wear out like a
garment. You change them like raiment, and they pass away; but you are the same, and your years have no end.
The fact that God doesn’t change should give us great comfort. It gives us great comfort because if God doesn’t change then his Word doesn’t change. This means that his Word is true and will always be true. Isaiah 40:8 says,
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.
I want to encourage you to attach your life to that which does not change. Enjoy the grass and the flowers but don’t attach your life to them because they will be here today and gone tomorrow. Enjoy the grass and the flowers, seek to bring about positive change, but build your life on the rock of the unchangeable God. The times they are a-changin but let us place our trust is Jesus who is the same yesterday, today, and forever!
