Devotion for Thursday after Passion Sunday

“Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he will never see death.” The Jews said to Him, “Now we know that You have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets also; and You say, ‘If anyone keeps My word, he will never taste of death.’ Surely You are not greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets died too; whom do You make Yourself out to be?” Jesus answered, “If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say, ‘He is our God’; and you have not come to know Him, but I know Him; and if I say that I do not know Him, I will be a liar like you, but I do know Him and keep His word. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.” So the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” Therefore they picked up stones to throw at Him, but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple. ~ John 8:51-59

With God, time and space don’t exist. He is limitless. He identified Himself to Moses as I AM, and Jesus (the Second Person of the Trinity) said that before the birth of Abraham, “I am.” God always was, is now, and always will be. Even more significantly, He is always the same. We change all the time, but God is forever.

Thank You, God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—that You are timeless, limitless, and changeless. I can’t comprehend the magnitude of You, Lord, and yet You want a close, personal relationship with every one of Your children, including me! I worship You now and always. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
