Jesus Never Changes

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." (Hebrews 13:8)

Julie was sad. Sarah, her sister, had always been her best friend, but now Sarah was too busy to play. Every fall Julie and Sarah made big piles of leaves and jumped in them with their dog, Taffy. But this year every time Julie asked Sarah to play in the leaves she had to study or to go to basketball practice or call one of her friends.

Now all the leaves were gone, and Julie wondered whether Sarah would be too busy to play in the snow this year, too. When Julie asked her mother why Sarah didn't play with her anymore, Mother said that Sarah was growing up and changing. Mother said that everyone changes and that Julie would change one day, too. "The only person who never changes is Jesus," Mother said. Julie was glad that Jesus never changed.

Have you ever been sad because someone changed? Maybe you have a brother or a sister who is growing up, or a grandpa or grandma who is getting older. Nobody can keep people from changing, but the Bible tells us that Jesus will never change. Jesus will always be reliable. He promises never to leave you, and He listens to everything you want to say to Him all the time. Isn't it good to know that He will always be the same!

Although other people change, Jesus will never change.

My Response:
» Do I trust Jesus all the time, knowing that He never changes?
» Do I thank Jesus for never changing?

BIG Christian Word

Born again - (born a-gen)

The term "born again" was first used by Jesus as he spoke to "Nicodemus", a ruler of the Jews. Jesus was explaining that in order to enter into the kingdom of God (heaven), that we have two births. One birth is a physical birth, which is of water. The second birth is a spiritual birth which is of the Spirit. The spiritual birth comes when one accepts Jesus as his Lord and Saviour and is adopted into the family of God. (John 3:5-7) "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."
