Thought for the Lord’s Day

Posted on December 7, 2014 · Posted in Worship

Jesus is the only constant in your life.

What is only one thing in your life that you can count on?

The faithfulness of Jesus Christ to carry out his Father’s will.

Everything else is up for grabs. You and I may live as if there are other things that we can rely on, but to do so is foolish. Only God is faithful. It is what God does that matters.

Like the disciples, we are often clueless about what matters in life. We forget that the only reliable relationship we have is the one we have with Christ.

Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:5-6
