It seems that everything is changing. The definition of family has changed, sexual gender identification has changed, and there is even climate change. Boundaries and borders are changing; world economies are changing, traditional customs are changing, and replaced by new ones. The way we communicate has changed. Face to face communication is becoming a thing of the past, and personal contact is rare. We have thousands of friends who we have never met personally; even the Church of God is changing to reflect social changes. While change is inevitable and necessary for growth, not all change is useful or beneficial.
Evangelist Billy Graham said: “While our world is shaking and crumbling, we need to realize that one thing will never change, and that is God. He is the same today as he was ten million years ago, and will be the same ten million years from today.”
The one thing that will never change is God! That means His love, laws, and precepts for fallen man will never change because He declares them in His Word, the Bible. Jesus said that the Word of God, the Bible, will never fail (Luke 1:37 NLT).
In this world where everything is changing, and systems and people are failing, we have an assurance from God that His Word, the Bible, will never fail. The government will fail you, the economy will fail you, politicians will fail you, your friends will fail you, your mother and father will fail you, and your spouse will fail you. However, the Word of God will never fail. The Word of God is the one, and the only thing that will not fail. Even if everything fails, His Word never fails.
Pastor, author, and teacher, Dr. A. R. Bernard wrote the following in his book, Four Things Women Want From a Man: “A principle is a broad and basic truth, a permanent feature on the human landscape; it doesn’t change with popular culture or social mores. Even if societal values shift, even if cultural norms are completely overturned, even if an entire population believes otherwise, God’s principles cannot be altered. His laws are as old as time itself. His truths never change.”
Beloved, in this world of constant change, hold on to the one unchanging, unfailing truth: the Word of God.
