A very warm welcome
to all who pass our doors, in the name of Jesus the Christ. It is by Him that this Reformed Church came into being, it is through Him that it has been sustained for more than 110 years, and it is for Him that it continues to preach His Gospel and show His love in the community.
for July and August 2014
"For I the Lord do not change."
A few years ago, I was asked to say a few words at the 50th wedding anniversary reception of a well-preserved and very active couple.
Family and a multitude of friends, were in attendance. Before the luncheon, the couple were asked to reminisce a little about the “good old days” and share how they had reached such a blessed milestone.
After they had shared all they could think of, they were asked what the biggest change in their life had been.” The wife thought for a minute and said, “I remember when we first met. Dear, don’t you remember how close to each other we would sit wherever we went? We don’t seem to do that anymore. Yes, that’s the biggest change.”
Having completed her answer, the wife then turned and looked at her husband, so he might confirm her response. His eye twinkled; he smiled and whispered so that only she and I could hear, “Dear, I haven’t moved.”
God is also remarkable in that He does not move.
We don’t want Him to. We need His immovable love, grace and care. We depend upon Him as the One rock-solid Person in our lives.
Incredible changes have taken place in the past hundred years - more change than ever in history. Even now the rate of change is so great that we barely catch our breath before another blast of change comes. Everything we are familiar with is changing right before our eyes.
The world may change, but God changes not - He is a pillar of stability, a reliable fortress. The God who loves us so much that He gave His only Son to save us WILL not change - the Bible promises it when it says in Malachi 3:6: “For I the Lord do not change”. Let’s give thanks to Him for that.
God bless you all,
