Our God is reliable! He doesn't change! He doesn't change his nature or his plans. and evidence of his unchanging mind is that in the Garden of Eden, God promised the Savior from sin, and He fulfilled that promise on the cross. He is eternal, unchanging, and faithful. Even while we like to change our minds so quickly, and are not reliable, we can rely on Him in every situation, and we can rely on Him to stay steadfast through cross and grave. In Lent, we see the full measure of our Lord’s reliability for us. And that is Good News indeed! For we need stability, certainty and confidence in this changing world. And most importantly that we are God's children loved by an Unchanging Father!
Return to the Lord Who will raise you up!
Our Midweek Lenten theme for today focuses on the reliability of our God. Back in Genesis, in the Garden of Eden to be precise, God promised that he will save us from sin and He fulfilled that promise on the cross when Jesus, the Saviour died. He is eternal, unchanging, and faithful. Even while we are not reliable, we can rely on Him in every situation, and we can rely on Him to stay steadfast to each of us as we go through our cross and grave, knowing that he did too and yet on the third day came back to life. In Lent, we see the full measure of our Lord’s reliability for us, he will raise us up not only from death, but from the deadness of of every spiritual attack as well.
“I will make it as good as new.” Those words of reassurance can provide a sense of relief and encouragement when something is broken and in need of repair. We are in constant need of relief, encouragement and even repair. That is the focus of our third midweek Service at Faith. Are you in need of relief, encouragement and repair? join us as we hear God's word that restores us. It is the same word of the Lord that came to the people of Israel through the prophet Jeremiah brought the promise of restoration to better days of living in harmony with God. It also brought a sense of hope. God said, “I will restore you; I will deliver you.” There is no “I might or I might not” when God promises something. God has kept and continues to keep His promises—we can count on that! We can be restored as we hear afresh God's restoring word.
