One Way In

Has God changed lately? It seems like it when you examine the attitudes you rub shoulders with every day. But let’s take a closer look.

Many people today shape God into a form they can manipulate and re-model as they wish. Many people want to come to God on their terms, expecting God to compromise His standards when necessary, to change His word, to make an exception. But is God like that?

Hebrews 13:8   Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. This verse is pretty clear. It says God is immutable—He never changes, His principles never change.

If we want to come to God then, it needs to be on His terms, not ours. But the good news is God's door is always open if we will come in His way, and that's through Jesus Christ, and Him alone.

John 14:6   Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

It’s settled then. God hasn’t changed; He is always the same. And there is only one way into fellowship with Him. I’m going to meditate on that today. How about you?
