“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them.”
Hebrews 13:8-9 NLT
In a world, a society, a culture, that is constantly changing, the reality that we worship an unchanging God is a welcome, counter-cultural place to be. We have a solid rock on which God has put us (Psalm 40:3), where we can be unshaken and unmoved by the vagaries of life. We need to beware of allowing new ideas that have been birthed in our secular society, even if promoted by our political leaders, to gain an insidious foothold in the Christian church. But we have grace, freely given by God, to give us strength in our Christian lives, and a confidence that will withstand any attempts by the enemy to infiltrate the church with “strange new ideas”. All glory and praise to Jesus, who “is the same yesterday, today and forever”. Amen!
