Our Faithful Father
We’re seeing less rain in June than we saw in April. It’s warmer too! With the changing of the seasons comes the changing of the weather. We see change in so many ways.
Our culture changes, politics change, and the economy is in flux. What I pay for a gallon of gas for my car may be completely different next week than it was this week.
Yet, the Bible tells us that while many other things may change, God does not. We read, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
God is faithful. His Word never changes. Jesus said, “‘Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.’” (Matthew 25:35)
We can count on what God says and who God is. He is faithful and approachable. “Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” (Hebrews 22-23)
We all make mistakes, but we will always be forgiven. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (I John 1:9) We may always approach God for forgiveness. He welcomes us home. His mercy never changes. We can always count on our Faithful Father
