“And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” (1 Peter 5:4)
In these days of relativism, situational ethics, and changing mores, it does a Christian good to note the many things in Scripture we can know, things we can count on, things that do not change. Following is a sampling of such truths, with little comment, intended to encourage the reader to extend the list, perhaps as an ongoing project.
We can know that Christ is God: “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30).
We can know that we are saved: “He that believeth on me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47).
We can know we are His dear children: “Beloved, now are we the sons of God” (1 John 3:2).
We can know His protection: “And they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” (John 10:28).
We can know He answers prayer: “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it” (John 14:14).
We can know He will help us through temptation: “In that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted” (Hebrews 2:18).
We can know how we should act: “For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done” (John 13:15).
We can know He desires us to speak on His behalf: “Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3:15).
We can know that He will come again: “I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:3).
We can know of our eternal rewards, as in today’s verse: “An inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you” (1 Peter 1:4). JDM, The Creation Institute, Dallas, Texas USA
