Never Changing

“I am the Lord, and I do not change.” Mal. 3:6

There is so much changing around us these days. We do not know from one day to another what is true and what is not. There is so little that we can really depend on. The good news is that God is the one constant factor in our lives. He is our rock and our stabilizing influence. We can depend on Him. He is not affected by public opinion, trends, or politics. Trust in Him. He won’t let you down.

Run to Him

The Name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to Him and are safe. Proverbs 18:10
Have you ever “run to God”? We run to something or someone for protection from something threatening us. Perhaps we are too formal with God. In times of trouble and calamity, we should run to Him for help and safety. We need to set our religious dignity aside and desperately seek Him and His help. This is that kind of a time. Run to God.

We All Need a Savior

Jesus said, “You should not be surprised when I say, ‘You must all be born again.’” John 3:7
That does surprise some of us. Some think they’re good enough to go to heaven without it. Others assume that baptism or joining a church is sufficient. And some think that everybody goes to heaven. If any of that were true, Jesus did not need to die on that cross. The fact is that all are sinners, all need a savior, and all can be born again. Have you been born again?

Be Merciful

The merciful man does himself good, But the cruel man does himself harm. Proverbs 11:17
It seems so easy anymore for people to ridicule and find fault with the slightest little things in others. We really don’t cut people much slack. However, the Bible says that when we are merciful, we actually benefit ourselves. Conversely, when we are cruel, we hurt ourselves. Perfect people don’t need mercy. It’s those who fall short that need it. And we need to give it.
