Seasons change, Truth doesn’t

Story of the day:  Seasons change, Truth doesn’t

“Our challenge is to stay up with the time, to serve our generation, yet in no way alter the truths of His Word.  Styles and methods change and must be kept up to date.  But truth?  It is timeless.  Not subject to change… We are to be willing to leave the familiar without disturbing the essentials.  To minister effectively the church must wake up to what changes…and what doesn’t…The church that sits around frowning at the future, doing little more than polishing yesterday’s apples, will become a church lacking in relevance and excitement.  At the same time, the church that softens its stand theologically and alters Scripture to fit the future’s style, will lose its power.”  Charles Swindoll

Quote of the day:  Dorothy Sayers

“It is not the business of the church to adapt Christ to men, but men to Christ.”

Bible verse of the day:  Hebrews 13:8

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for not changing.  I thank You that Your truth is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  Father, our world is moving so fast and things are constantly changing, it is during these times that I pray for peace and rest in You.  Father, I also pray for unity within the church so that the outreach of the truth is reaching many more.  I pray to always be willing to follow the path that You place before me and not get stuck in my own ways.  I thank You for this blessed day!

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
