Hebrews 13:7–16 (ESV)

Sacrifices Pleasing to God

Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, which have not benefited those devoted to them. 10 We have an altar from which those who serve the tent have no right to eat. 11 For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy places by the high priest as a sacrifice for sin are burned outside the camp. 12 So Jesus also suffered outside the gate in order to sanctify the people through his own blood. 13 Therefore let us go to him outside the camp and bear the reproach he endured. 14 For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. 15 Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. 16 Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

 

There is a gem of a verse hidden in today’s reading: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”  For all those who say the Bible changes over time … and times have changed, God doesn’t change.  I hear people that say that God has spoken to them or revealed to them what is right… yet their interpretation goes against God’s Word.  NO!  God doesn’t change, and his Word endures forever.  These people often say that they believe the Bible IS God’s Word and that it is inerrant and infallible.  Then why are you changing it?  Stick to God’s Word!  In the news this week, the Episcopal Church is discussing changing the Bible to be gender neutral.   Really?  Then you are saying the Bible is errant and fallible.

 

I pray: O Lord, help me to keep your Word as it is written and not change it… but let it change me.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
