In a world of uncertainty many need a way that stays the same and is not wavering. We all can find this stability in Christ who never changes. “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. 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 13:5-9).
How many times has one throughout the years searched for a church we feel holds the truth of God’s word only to be disappointed in some of the belief systems they hold as the will of God? Jesus is our all in all which means we can put our full trust in what he was sent here to accomplish at the cross to draw all men unto himself and purchase by his shed blood the redemption of many! He is our High Priest without frailty as we as human beings have. Christ is the firm foundation of the church of the saints he has purchased. “But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore”.(Hebrews 7:24-28).
The blood bought church of the many membered body is the assembly of our Lords’s unchangeable priesthood that we serve now while we live and in the future for all eternity within the body of Christ as believers! “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood”. (Acts 20:28). “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell, And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven”.(Colossians 1:16-20).
Our Lord does not change and although many ways to believe come and go, he will always remain steadfast in the mission he came to earth to bring us and that is remission of sins through repentance and unending salvation!
