Our Never-Changing Rock


Growing older, the more grateful I’ve become for the truth that, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Heb. 13:8).  

The Eternal Friend

It is well that there is one who is ever the same and who is ever with us. It is well that there is one stable rock amidst the billows of the sea of life. Oh my soul! Set not thine affections upon rusting, moth-eaten, decaying treasures, but set thing heart upon him who abides forever faithful to thee.

Build not thine house upon the moving quick sands of a deceitful world, but found thy hopes upon this rock, which, amid descending rain and roaring floods, shall stand immovably secure. My soul, I charge thee, lay up thy treasure in the only secure cabinet; store thy jewels where thou canst never lose them.

Put thine all in Christ; set all thine affections on His person, all thy hope in his merit, all thy trust in His efficacious blood, all thy joy in his presence, and so thou mayest laugh at loss and defy destruction.

Remember that all the flowers in the world’s garden fade by turns, and the day cometh when nothing will be left but the black, cold earth. Death’s black extinguisher must soon put out thy candle. Oh, how sweet to have sunlight when the candle is gone! The dark flood must soon roll between thee and all thou hast; then wed thine heart to Him who will never leave thee: trust thyself with Him who will go with thee through the black and surging current of death’s stream, and who will land thee safely on the celestial shore, and make thee sit with Him in heavenly places forever. Go, sorrowing son of affliction, tell thy secrets to the Friend who sticketh closer than a brother. Trust all thy concerns with Him who never can be taken from thee, who will never leave thee, and who will never let thee leave Him, even Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

~ Charles Spurgeon

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
