God never changes

My friend is annoyed with me. Now I know that to some of you this may not be a surprise! But, when they called the other day and found out that I was in my office listening to music instead of being glued to the television watching the events in the news unfold, they could hardly believe it. “This is earth shaking!” I was told. But I calmly responded that right now I am writing about someone who actually is earth shaking—God. 

I am not going to say that the events of our times are not important; I am going to say though that they are not earth shaking. The truth is that throughout history there have been many important events that were thought to be world changing. But through it all there has been one constant–God. Governments have risen and God was still God. Governments have fallen and God was still God. Churches have formed and God was still God. Churches have disbanded and God was still God. 

Two millennia ago there actually was an earth shaking event. The day the shepherds went to see the child that they were told about by the angels changed the world. Some thirty-three years later there was an earthquake as that same child sacrificed Himself for all of us. That was a world-changing event. And He has never been away from us since. Each day the news seems to provoke many different emotions; fear, anxiety, celebration and indifference. But we do not need to be afraid because God had promised us His unfailing presence and love. There was a time when I would have been glued to the television eagerly waiting to see what happens next. Now? I guess I would rather tell the world of a loving God who can change the world, not for a few years but for eternity.

Got questions? Find a church near you. That is where to find the answers.

Deuteronomy 31:6 New King James Version (NKJV): “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
