Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever. What comfort I take in that. He says He’ll never leave me nor forsake me, no matter what happens, no matter where I go. In the book of Matthew, I try and read chapters 4-7 when I can. They are filled with Jesus’ words. Some are encouraging, some are provoking. All are alive, as stated in Hebrews 4:12. The Word of God is quick and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword, and piercing, even to the dividing asunder of joint and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Powerful! As He is: powerfully able to defeat enemies of our soul, powerfully loving and powerfully merciful and full of grace. Oh, what an amazing Savior.
