The More Things Change.....

"I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes..." (Rom.1:16).

The apostle Paul tells us in today's verse what the gospel is, and that He was not ashamed of it. He is more specific in his first letter to the church at Corinth, as he writes this about the gospel he preached to them; "For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that he raised on the third day according to the scriptures, and that He appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve" (1 Cor.15:3-4). The gospel strongly implies God's foreknowledge... Perhaps you have read my title this morning and filled in the rest, making it read; "The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same." Since the first century, many things have changed greatly. Transportation, agriculture, communication and the ability to access information, just to mention a few. Against this backdrop of change, lets take an incisive look at some very important things that have not changed. Man's basic needs have not changed! Man still desires to be loved and needed. He needs security, guidance, forgiveness and reconciliation. Man still needs a real purpose in life... Well, surprise, surprise, surprise.... The gospel STILL meets men's basic needs. To me, this makes our God even more magnificent because he knew how things would change over time. With that He also knew the endurance of the gospel message. After all, the more things change....

Have a great day... Make your little part of the world better.... Love mark Phil.4:11
