Jesus Never Changes
Daily Devotional for May 21st
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. Hebrews 13:8-9
Some of the most popular Christian denominations and doctrines today are in contempt of God in their unscriptural teaching that Jesus does not perform miracles in people’s lives the way He has always done. They sadly find themselves fighting against the will of God. It could be for a variety of reasons. The saddest part of their claims is they rob people from receiving the promises that Jesus died at Calvary to provide for them. However, the eternal truths in the Word of God are forever. The Bible rings true with one message; and that is Jesus Never Changes!
The simple message here is that Jesus Christ is the same for all time, for all generations, and to all people. Immediately following these wonderful words is Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. Notice that doctrines mentioned in these verses carry you. Paul spoke of doctrine in Ephesians as “winds of doctrine.” The idea is that doctrines are demonic tempestuous winds that blow from Satan to attempt to drive your ship off course!
The Lord knew there would be a time when the tempter would seek to carry people away from God’s promises the same as storm winds carry a ship away from its direction. We should not allow any doctrine to pull people away from the truth that Jesus never changes. His will does not change! Jesus’ words do not change! There is absolutely no variableness, neither shadow of turning with Him!
The truth is, that what Jesus promised two thousand years ago is still a promise to you today. You may be wondering if Jesus will heal your body. The simple answer is; Yes! Not only is He able to heal, He is willing! Jesus is always willing. You may be in a situation right now where you are bound by some chain of Satan’s bondage and wonder if Jesus will set you free. Be not afraid, friend, only believe. Trust the Lord! He will deliver! He will set you free! He will perform to the uttermost the promises He has made to you.
