Jesus Is The Same Wherever We Are

Tena koutou, and greetings church family.

The other day I was listening to a conversation by a group of people about ‘what is faith’ and ‘what it means to have faith’.

I appreciated them sharing their story of what God had done for them over their life journey. One talked about an upbringing that was based on going to church and being around people who had faith. Another shared of a totally different experience where God was not even mentioned in their upbringing but had been drawn later to faith by people who witnessed their faith in their normal day to day life.

More conversation led to ‘what do people today have faith in’? who do they believe? Is there variation of faith? What a thought-provoking conversation!

Finally, as the conversation ended, one said: “I trust God because Jesus is the same always. He is the same when I am down, He is the same when I’m in the up and He is the same wherever I am”.

This conversation is one that resonates with many people in society who are seeking identity for themselves. Here are some scriptures that I encourage you to read and engage prayerfully and perhaps offer to others who are having a similar conversation.

Hebrew 13:8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever”.

Romans 10:17faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

Hebrews 11:6And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him”.
