"Right and Wrong"

"The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever." 1 Peter 1:24-25

We are living in a world of unprecedented change. In one generation we have gone from horse travel to the space shuttle. Technology continues to accelerate, making possible more advanced computers, new medical procedures, and conveniences unthinkable years ago.

There is nothing wrong with progress. But we must take care amid the rapid changes occurring today that we do not drift from our Christian moorings. God and His Word, the Bible, never vary. They are our secure anchor during life's tempests.

Recently we heard a Christian defend unethical business practices: "That's what you have to do these days to get ahead." A church member who fell into sexual sin said apologetically, "I know the Bible says it's wrong, but it feels natural and right." Such statements are symptoms of an age that suffers from the disease of relativism. However, God tells us that what's wrong is wrong, and His Word is right. People and their ideas flower quickly and fade with time, but God's Word is permanent, enduring forever.

Thank God that in our changing world we have His changeless promise of forgiveness through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

PRAYER: Lord, guide me by Your changeless Word. Help me shun evil and seek that which is good; for Jesus' sake. Amen.
