Yesterday, Today and Forever

    This wonderful, rainy Sunday the Lord blessed us with, is such a joy. Can you remember last year when we were praying for the rain? What about yesterday, did the rain change any of your weekend plans? As Christians, one thing that remains the same is Jesus Christ our Savior. Jesus Christ is forever and we serve a Savior that is the same yesterday, today and forever. 

    When you think of yesterday, do you have a time of reflection on your blessings or a time of disaster? Yesterday can be made up of things we want to forget and things we can't take back. We may want to go back yesterday and do things over to make them better and have the chance to do more. But Jesus lives today! We can't do anything about the yesterday. Our Jesus is the same today as He was yesterday and today, we can do something. Jesus can give us a strength and victory over our sin today. If we are able to understand His abilities and commit to our fellowship with Him, our today can be different. 

    Then there is forever. Forever has no beginning and no end. Forever has no start and no stop. What about our forever in eternity? Even when we are saved, eternity can seem scary. But how scary would forever be if Jesus wasn't there? An eternity in hell where there is no hope. Not even the relief of death, forever in darkness. 

    But thank God for sending His son Jesus who died for our sins. The forever for a believer in Heaven where we will walk streets of gold, fellowship with our Lord Jesus where He is the only light. We can't do anything about the past, but we can find forgiveness in Jesus. Jesus is our present abiding saviour and we will all have a home in eternity before us. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever!  

"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." Hebrews 13:8
