Change, Change, and More Change!

Hebrews 13:8
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

We live in a world of change, don’t we? People change. Fads change. Styles change. Ideologies change. In fact, it has been said that the only constant is change. Today, I became personally affected by change. I found out that the company where I’ve worked for the past ten years has sold out several of its product lines, including the one I work in. The good news is, that the new company I work for, and I stress new, because it is a newly established business, is launching with a big workforce of employees that have been shifted to this new company. Not one job has been lost. So, while things have changed, some will stay the same. Yes, change is everywhere.

The writer of Hebrews understood that change played a big part of their lives. You see, they were afraid for their lives. You could have been killed for faith in Jesus Christ. Many of the believers were contemplating a return to Judaism. But in the midst of all of the change, and all the fear and running, these folks could have the assurance of One that will never change- the Lord Jesus Christ! These people had built the house upon the Rock. And though the world was turbulent and changing all around them, they needed to be assured that Jesus was always with them.

In today’s world, there is a lot of fear. Will there be a job for me tomorrow? Will the stock market crash? You name it, there is uncertainty attached. But, brethren, be assured that this whole world can pass away, but out confidence can remain fixed on the One who never changes- the Lord Jesus Christ! God bless.
