As we climax the age, everything we see in this physical world is headed for corruption and therefore, susceptible to change. However, there is only one thing that remains constant and that is the word of God. The word is the same yesterday, today and forever. It never changes. It is like an ancient landmark, which the fathers have set. It is constant and it means the same at all times. The word of God is the final authority on all issues.
For instance, no matter how society may attempt to make gay marriage acceptable, we know that the scripture does not say a man shall be joined to a man. The word of God simply says that “a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife (woman) and they shall become one.” (Genesis 2:24) That is an absolute. That is an ancient landmark that cannot be changed, even in the face of 21st Century modernism.
In the same vein, no matter how much of good works a man engages in, or how much kindness he displays, the totality of his goodness cannot earn him his salvation. Yes the Bible encourages having high moral values, but as good as being kind is, there is only one doorway to salvation. The answer is an absolute. “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God’’ (John 3:3). You are not saved and made righteous because of what you did, but because of what Jesus did.
Beloved, as a new creature, do not let the devil deceive you into thinking that God is angry with you. The truth is that He is actually in love with you. Yes, you may not qualify by human standards, but God not only qualified you, He chose you ever before the foundation of the earth was laid. There is nothing anyone can do about it. Believe the word of God and begin to see things from God’s perspective and not from your own small perspective because your natural sight is limited.
