Sunday Morning Starters – Worship
For I am the Lord, I do not change. (Malachi 3:6)
Worship An Unchangeable God
Today is the first day of the week. While it bears a different name over the generations of man today has been unchanged since the creation of the world. The Lord established time with the division of days and weeks. On the fourth day of creation He ordained the lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night with signs and seasons. This has remained unchanged for the myriad thousands of years the world has stood. With God’s blessing the sun has risen to rule the day and the moon has appeared in the night sky to rule the night – unchanged since the beginning of time.
The testimony of God’s hand is evident in creation showing how His will remains unchanged. The oceans have remained full since creation and the land has produced crops. Weather has turned cold and hot with seasons that remain unchanged. Man’s deliria with global warming is a denial of God’s creation. He remains in charge and what He has established in creation remains unchanged. It is interesting to think the same moon we view today is the same moon Abraham looked to in his travels. David beheld the canvas of stars still visible today. Each day the sun shines forth just like it did in the days of God’s servant Job.
Worship has remained unchanged since Adam and Eve gave honor to the Lord. The elements of worship have changed in accordance with the will of God but the nature of worship has remained the same. God demands honor given to Him from man. Today we gather to follow a plan as old as the earth. What we do today has remained unchanged. We give glory to the Father. Our hearts are dependent on a God that does not change. His desire for man today is salvation just like it was four hundred years ago or four thousand years ago. Our joy today is salvation comes through the blood of Jesus Christ.
As we worship today let’s remember the unchangeable nature of God. Man says he changes time but in fact the sun and moon remain unaltered and thank God for that. The God that Moses served is the same God we serve today. He is the unchangeable God and we will praise Him for that today.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
