Never Changing

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

I read just about anything. The other day, I read an article about quartz watches. I had no idea of the technology behind a quartz watch, so I found the information fascinating. 

In a quartz watch, the battery sends an electric signal through a tiny piece of quartz, which vibrates at a very precise frequency, exactly 32,768 times per second. The watch uses that fixed vibration rate to keep time. Because the vibration rate is always constant, quartz time pieces are highly dependable—much more accurate time-keepers than many other types of clocks and watches.

The quartz watch may be reliable, but I know something (I should say, Someone) that is more reliable — absolutely reliable. His name is Jesus, and He’s the same, always. He never changes! [Hebrews 13.8]. His timeless nature is just as important to us today as it was to the early church. 

We are bombarded daily by social media with the latest fads: How to train your mind. How to organize your closet. How to eat what cavemen ate. Interesting? Maybe. But, as we know, these things change with the next “greatest” thing to come along. So, it is far better to focus on the unchanging character of Christ. He has withstood the test of time. All the rest, not so much. 

Put your complete confidence in the One who never changes and against whom even the gates of hell cannot prevail [Matthew 16.18].

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
