Welcome 

Grace, mercy and peace be to you from God our Father and from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Amen.

What a year we have had! There were a lot of wonderful times and some that were a little trying. Some things changed and some really didn’t, but if you take a closer look, nothing in this world really stays the same. Our children and grandchildren age, for that matter, so do we, so yes, everything changes…well, almost everything. God’s Word is the same, yesterday, today and forever!

Hebrews 13:8 tells us that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” And in John chapter one, we learn that Jesus Christ is the Word.

It is comforting to know that God’s Word never changes. We were reassured of that throughout the Church Year as we observed major themes in the life of our Savior. As we were changing the truth of God’s Word was not and is not. That should be a comfort to us because that also means that God’s promise of salvation in Christ as our Savior, for that matter NONE of God’s promises ever changes! They are all in place!

However, the world, led by their prince, the devil, would change God’s Word to suit themselves as the devil works very hard to lead us astray. Politicians come up with new laws that are against God’s will and the world follows, finding ways to rationalize that it is ok, especially if the government says that it is legal.

The verses right after Hebrews 13:8 warn us of the same things. Just the author of Hebrews says that Jesus is the same, verse nine continues: “Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, which have not benefited those devoted to them.” Now this verse ends with the author speaking about food but if you continue to read in Hebrews it is speaking to those who have rationalized their way around not just food but in other things too. They were listening to new teachings, different than God’s, finding ways to call things right so that they could do what they wanted to do. Now transport this situation to today. Aren’t we doing the same things when it comes to so many moral laws and teachings? Itching ears longing to hear what they want to hear? Just as we are told in 2 Timothy 4:3 “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,”

So as we begin this New Year, let’s use 20/20 eyesight to look to read and follow God’s Word rather than looking at Satan’s world using rose colored glasses. Rationalizing ourselves away from God.

I’m looking forward to beginning a new year as your pastor and the joy of proclaiming God’s Word. 

God’s richest blessings as we move into the Year of our Lord, 2020.

Pastor K
