Never-Changing Truth

For Sunday June 12, 2022:

NEVER-CHANGING TRUTH

Psalm 119:160 (NKJV)
The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your
righteous judgments endures forever.

People who lie have a problem: trying to remember what they have said to whom, or what version of the truth they last conveyed. It has often been said that the greatest advantage to telling the truth is that you don’t have to remember what you have said: the version of the story you told ten years ago is the same one you tell today.

The Bible is the repository of the truth God has delivered to humankind—and it is truth that never changes. The same truth that God delivered in the Old Testament is the truth we find in the New Testament. For instance, nine of the Ten Commandments given to Israel are repeated as commands for the church (meeting on the Sabbath being the exception; however, the writer of Hebrews tells us we’re not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together). When it comes to practical and holy living, the same solutions God gave saints of old work in the lives of today’s Christian believers. Because God’s Word (whether spoken or written) is settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89), we need never wonder what God says about life’s most important questions.

When seeking guidance from God in prayer, it does no good to ask if He has changed His mind on a moral question. God’s truth is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me;
it has hands, it lays hold on me.
