Today's devotion is based on Hebrews 13:8, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."
"Jesus Christ is the same . . ." That means the message delivered by Jesus, the eternal Son of God, will not need to be altered or reformatted for another time or place. The message is the same. The truth of his words stands firm forever. It means the reassuring comfort of his presence is the same for every person in the world. Every believer, including the saints in glory, can say, "Jesus is with me."
When we meet Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, on the last day, he will be the same Jesus who had come in time to live, die, rise, and ascend into heaven. His words, presence, forgiveness, and love will be forever the same, for "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."
Please pray with me: Jesus, I am encouraged and comforted knowing you are unchanging. I can count on your unchanging word, continual presence, daily forgiveness, and eternal love. Through all the changing experiences of my life, I know that you will lead me on the sure path to the glory you have prepared for me. In your blessed name, I pray. Amen.
