Somethings never change!

In the book of Ecclesiastes chapter 3 the Bible speaks of seasons and how there is a season for everything.

Ecclesiastes 3 New King James Version Everything Has Its Time

3 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:

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

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

3 A time to kill, And a time to heal;

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

4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh;

A time to mourn, And a time to dance;

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

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

6 A time to gain, And a time to lose;

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

7 A time to tear, And a time to sew;

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

8 A time to love, And a time to hate;

A time of war, And a time of peace.

The season for snowdrops is definitely over, I took this picture the other day and while they have done well to last this long they have had their day 'the flower fades.' Seasons come and seasons go, but the Bible tells us quite clearly that the Word of God stands forever.

The 'somethings never change' statement is usually said sarcasticaly, as when someone lets you down once again, but Jesus, the Word made flesh, will never change, He is the same yesterday, today and forever, and that is God's promise to us, His love will never change towards us, He wants to be with us at all times, we just have to let Him. As we go through Lent and move towards Good Friday and Easter Sunday it is good to reflect on a God that is with us always, a God who even became a man just to save us, save us from what? you may ask, save us from ourselves and our sins, the Bible tells us we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God but it also tells us that we don't need to stay there, we don't need to keep sinning, we have been set free from that by the shed blood of Jesus on the cross and have been empowered to live a life free from sin in Christ Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Move into a new season, a season that can change you forever, get rooted and grounded in the Word of God, something that will never change.
