Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
Kingdoms may come and go, cultural trends may come in and out of style, and great leaders may build empires and great monuments to themselves but no one can stand in comparison to the unchanging greatness of Jesus Christ. John 1:1-3 boldly proclaims, “1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” In other words, Jesus existed as God the Son before all creation and He made you and everything you see for His Father’s glory.
Paul also said in Philippians 2:10-11, “…at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” There is no escaping His Kingdom, be sure of this, everyone will bow before Him. Are you ready to meet and bow before your Maker?
In a time when the media proudly defies God, comedians and musicians alike ridicule His followers, and politicians and world leaders try to outlaw His Words Jesus remains unchanged and unmoved. You will grow old and die, your strength will fail you and all your greatness and success will evaporate like dew in the heat of the sun but Jesus will remain exactly the same.
Every great author’s books will vanish, all the wisdom of men will disappear but Jesus and his gospel will last forever. In the end Jesus’ gospel will cover the earth like satellite airwaves cover the globe with TV and Internet. John wrote in Revelation 14:6, “Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth —to every nation, tribe, language and people.” Have you accepted His gospel?
Here are three ways you can stand with Jesus and His gospel, (1) Repent and believe the good news of Jesus Christ; (2) Preach the gospel to as many people as you can in this life; and (3) Pray for God to save sinners with His gospel in every part of the world.
