“I will be the same until your old age, and I will bear you up when you turn gray. I have made you, and I will carry you; I will bear and save you.” (Isaiah 46:4 HCSB)
“God is God and I am not.” I remember growing up with these lyrics. Music is a powerful way to rehearse the greatness and goodness of God (Colossians 3:16; Psalm 147:1, 7). He never changes (Numbers 23;19; Hebrews 13:8). He’s always faithful (2 Timothy 2:13). He is good and only does good (James 1:17). He created all things, sustains the universe, saves souls, and carries His children safely into eternity. Praise the Lord!
People will deny God’s existence and role as Creator and Savior (Romans 1:18-32; 2 Peter 3:3-7). And they’ll do so vehemently until they die. Their substitute for the cause and existence of the universe—in the name of “science”—is often blind chance, billions of years of evolution, and “Mother Nature.” But one day soon they will return to the dust, realize the truth, and then their eternal souls will “bow the knee” in submission to their Creator (Philippians 2:10-11).
The triune God is the Master Engineer, Architect, Builder, and Creator (Genesis 1-2). Salvation and eternal life are exclusively found in the Lord Jesus Christ—the only Way of eternal life (John 14:6). The Holy Spirit regenerates our souls and carries us through the ongoing process of sanctification (Titus 3:5; Philippians 1:6).
Find hope, peace, and life eternal in God’s gift of salvation today. It’s free to you, but bought with precious blood (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5:8; 1 Peter 1:17-19).
“To whom will you liken me and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be alike?” (Isaiah 46:5 ESV)
“When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?” (Psalm 8:3-4 ESV)
“so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10-11 NASB)
“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Corinthians 5:20-21 ESV)
