TOPIC: GOD’S WORD DOESN’T CHANGE (1)
TEXT: Psalms 119:160 “The entirety of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.
A publishing house advertised: ‘Ten books to read before you die’ and the Bible didn’t make the list! Amazing; if there’s one book you should read it’s the Bible! When a well-known Christian author replaced her favorite cookbook with a ‘New and Updated’ version, she said: ‘It wasn’t the same. It had been adapted for convenience and people are trying to. do the same with God’s Word; adapt it to make it more convenient, time-saving, and easier to follow. The truth is, God’s Word never changes. The results of sin are the same: ‘The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ.„'(Rom. 6:23). God’s plan of salvation hasn’t changed: By grace you have been saved through faith…not of works, lest anyone should boast’ (Eph. 2:8-9). His method for finding guidance is in the same place: ‘The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul. The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the. simple; The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes’. His solution for anger is still the same: ‘Rest in the Lord… Cease from anger, and forsake
wrath…it only causes harm’. (Psa 37:7-8).
His method for finding peace hasn’t changed: ‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let Your requests be made known…and the
peace of God… will guard your hearts and minds…’ (Phil.4:6-7). The Psalmist said, ‘All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.’ Bottom line: ‘new
and improved’ simply isn’t in the Book!
