Scripture Reading: Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Reflections: Things have changed for the worse and appears to continue on the same tangent. The advent of this so called novel COVID-19 heightens this action. It’s attending worldwide lockdown phenomenon, breaking down the socio-economic development of countries is a case in point. Sweeping changes takes place every time everywhere. The Hebrew writer’s submission, that in spite of times which he captures as ‘yesterday, today and forever’ within which changes occurs, Jesus Christ remains the same, should stir up your attention at this time. The word ‘same’ translated from the Greek ‘autos’ is a reflexive and personal pronoun which indicates an identity and in this context points out clearly the identity of Jesus as unchangeable despite the changes that can occur within time. As unchangeable, He is the only solution to the changing needs of the world. Your confidence to remain hidden in Him should therefore be resolute and unshakable! Keep holding on to Him. He is the unchangeable God!
Prayer: Dear Lord, I thank you that you are unchangeable. You remain my hope in this fast changing world.
Confession. The fast changing world has no effect on my God. He is unchangeable and I am hidden in Him.
