Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and for ever. This is one of the most beautiful sentences in the book of Hebrews. In a changing world, there is peace in these words. We can always trust Jesus, he will always be faithful to us. Our ideas about Jesus may change and our understanding should grow, but the person of Jesus, and his love for us, can be a constant in our lives.
I often wonder (fruitlessly) what the human Jesus was like. Was it obvious that he was unique, or did he seem just another man? What was it like to look into his eyes or hear his voice? Although we cannot go back in time to meet Jesus as he walked on the earth, we can meet him in prayer anytime we wish. Yesterday, today and for ever.
