DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 19; Psalms 58-59; Acts 10:24-48

This same Jesus shall so come in like manner. Acts 1:11
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8

The statement has been made, “A ‘changing’ Christ for a ‘changing’ world.” But is that what is needed? Is that really the issue? Or is it that the world wants to change the rules to accommodate a sinful lifestyle, to resist what conscience knows is implicitly wrong? What is needed is not a change ahead to new things, but a change back to what has stood the test of time—given by the One who said, “I am the Lord, I change not!” (Mal. 3:6). The only thing that is new is His mercies, and they come every morning. Let’s thank the Lord that He who is untainted by time or trend never changes and is always the same. —Mark Kolchin

Yesterday, today, forever, Jesus is the same.
All may change, but Jesus never! Glory to His name!
—A. B. Simpson
