Blessing Certainty

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8

 

The news does not look good. There is uncertainty inWashington. What will the new health care law mean for us individually, where we live and work?  Will it be challenged again, change, or go away altogether?  Uncertainty and change have been part of our government since it began, just because we have new leaders and new centers of power after each election. What one knows for sure today is in doubt tomorrow.

The news does not look good. There is uncertainty in your life and mine. What will the medical test show about my health? Will this medicine work? Will I have a job next year, or be able to retire comfortably when that day comes? Uncertainty in health and finances has been a part of our lives since we were born, just because we are mortal humans that live in a world of change.

The news does look good. There is certainty in God’s Kingdom. Our eternal health plan and health is a sure thing. Christ is certainly not going to change, nor will the effects of his atoning death and victorious resurrection. The cross proclaims the certainty of God’s love for us. The empty tomb shouts the certainty of our future now and forever. Jesus has conquered the power of death and sin, silenced the doubts, and promised a sure hope for all who believe. Earthly kingdoms rise and fall don’t change when they should, and do when they should not. Through it all Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. In the world of change, cling to the one who changes not. He makes our world certain.

Like I said, the News looks Good.
