Jesus Never Changes
Objects: A kaleidoscope
Theme: Jesus never changes
Scriptures: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
Most of you probably know what this is. It is a kaleidoscope. When you hold a kaleidoscope up to the light, you see beautiful colors and designs. When you twist the end of the kaleidoscope, the designs are constantly changing.
I can remember when I was a child I would spend hours looking at the beautiful colors and designs in a kaleidoscope. Sometimes I would see a design that was so beautiful that I would want to save it, but when I would move the kaleidoscope ever so slightly, the image would change. No matter how long or how hard I tried, I could never recapture that image again. That is the way it is with a kaleidoscope, it is never the same. It is always changing.
We live in a world that is like that. Our world is constantly changing. People change, the seasons change, knowledge changes. Nothing ever seems to stay the same. In a world that is constantly changing, it would be nice if there was at least one thing that we could count on to stay the same when everything around us is changing.
Well, there is something that never changes. The Bible tells us that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." When everything around us is changing and we don't know what to believe or what to think, we can always know that Jesus remains the same. His love for us remains the same. His truth remains the same. That is one thing we can count on.
Thank you, Jesus, for your love that never changes. We are so thankful that we can count on you to remain the same when everything around us is changing!
