Have you ever heard the verse about Jesus Christ being the same yesterday, today, and forever? Today on the blog I’m sharing a sort of “aha” moment I had on it recently.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” —Hebrews 13:8
This may be a short post, and it may be something that you’ve already thought about, but it just kinda hit me in a new way recently.
I’ve always grown up thinking about this verse in terms of that what Jesus did in the past–dying on the cross and defeating death–remains true for us today. That He has the same strength to defeat sin and death now as He did then (which is true). Yet I forget that I have that same Jesus living inside of me. That same power is the power I am given to live my everyday life. I don’t apply it to me. I forget that what He has done before, He can do again. And I forget that the future Jesus–the rider on the white horse, the slayer of Hades, the triumphant King of Heaven–He’s here with me in today. He’s outside of time. The majesty and power and glory with which He rules Heaven is the same majesty and power and glory with which He lives inside of me.
He’s the same. What is true of Him in the past and future is true of Him in me today. What power! What a thought!
The King of Heaven is the God that speaks to me in my anxiety, the God who carries my heart, the God who is breaking through and doing miracles. He’s the same! THAT is the God I get to have! The lover of my soul, my Bridegroom, my King, today! I have Him today! All of Him throughout history and in the future is with me now.
