Summary: The same sensation felt as the good old days, has been felt by everyone at some point in their lives. The one constant that has never changed is Jesus and The fathers amazing love for each of us!

Yesterday things were different

Yesterday things were different

Today they're different again

Jesus will never change

Jesus is always the same

By George Younce

Throughout history, people have come accustom to living a certain way, with certain values and certain people in their lives.

Things weren’t always that way, they once were quite different. There was a starting point, then learning, then adaption, then implementation.

New levels of life came along and were readily accepted. Growing periods were just that, they were growing periods. Times in which you grew and became better because of them!

Each one came with a new set of circumstances, each one came with the factor of trust and each one came with the sense they could be conquered. The results of the learning experience would benefit everyone!

And then something happened, someone wasn’t there anymore. Familiar faces disappeared and change took place without enough notice.

Yesterday things were different

Today they're different again

Jesus will never change

Jesus is always the same

By George Younce

The same sensation felt as the good old days, has been felt by everyone at some point in their lives. The one constant that has never changed is Jesus and The fathers amazing love for each of us!

Russ Taft sang these words;

Time is filled with swift transition, mm, mm

None, none on earth unmoved can stand

Build your hopes on things eternal

And then hold, hold onto God's unchanging hand

Everyone who has walked through this thing we call life, has felt swift transition! Instead of dwelling on what we don’t have, or what we may think sometimes has been taken from us, we should be so thankful in the times we are living in, for what we do have!

I know God is God, and God don't ever change,

I know God is God and He always will be God.

He's God on the platform, He's God back at the door,

He's God in the amen corner, He's God all over the floor.

He's God when the lightning flashes, He's God when the thunder roll,

He's God way up in heaven, He's God way down in my soul.

The Bible talks about change in depth and promises there will be change!

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

(New King James Version)

To everything there is a season,

A time for every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born, And a time to die;

A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;

A time to kill, And a time to heal;

A time to break down, And a time to build up;

A time to weep, And a time to laugh;

A time to mourn, And a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones;

A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to gain, And a time to lose;

A time to keep, And a time to throw away;

A time to tear, And a time to sew;

A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;

A time to love, And a time to hate;

A time of war, And a time of peace.

And through and for each one of those events of life, God sent his son Jesus who stands there for us, with His arms wide open!

To Help us, to stand with us, to comfort us, to lead guide and protect us! Even though physically we may not have seen the miracle, so many times Jesus has even carried us over the finish line to victory, without ever saying so much as a word!

The Bible is full of many examples of were change occurred while God was busy working His plans for all of us! We read of an event of change and swift transition similar to what we’re talking about in Acts chapter nine.

Acts 9:1-9 MSG

1-2 All this time Saul was breathing down the necks of the Master’s disciples, out for the kill. He went to the Chief Priest and got arrest warrants to take to the meeting places in Damascus so that if he found anyone there belonging to the Way, whether men or women, he could arrest them and bring them to Jerusalem.

3-4 He set off. When he got to the outskirts of Damascus, he was suddenly dazed by a blinding flash of light. As he fell to the ground, he heard a voice: “Saul, Saul, why are you out to get me?”

5-6 He said, “Who are you, Master?”

“I am Jesus, the One you’re hunting down. I want you to get up and enter the city. In the city you’ll be told what to do next.”

7-9 His companions stood there dumbstruck—they could hear the sound, but couldn’t see anyone—while Saul, picking himself up off the ground, found himself stone-blind. They had to take him by the hand and lead him into Damascus. He continued blind for three days. He ate nothing, drank nothing.
