The Same Yesterday, Today and Forever

Hebrews 13:8 says that Jesus is "the same yesterday, today, and forever." Sadly, too many in the Church take that to mean that change is a bad thing. It's not. While change just for the sake of change may be wrong, change for the sake of growth is necessary for survival.

Change is life. Just as a small child grows and matures, so we - as Christians - must do the same. It's a sign of healthy life. If that same child didn't grow, Mom and Dad would be worried and searching out the doctor to find out what was wrong! Change is required in living things. Otherwise we stagnate and die.

Let's remember that the next time the pastor wants to implement a new program or the Sunday School teacher changes the format of the her class. Change can be healthy and even fun. Look for the good in the changes you face. Life will be much less stressful, if nothing else.
