A Light for our Paths

A Light for our Paths

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. It is hard to imagine those words being any more comforting to the original audience of Hebrews than they are to us today. The past year has been so full of things not the same, in the world around us, in our own country, here in our own church family. The social upheaval brought about by the demise of communism in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union continues to reverberate around the world. The elections of 1994 far surpassed those of 1992 in terms of the changes wrought in Washington. The city of Nashville saw the re-opening of the Ryman--a renewing reminder of the past--and much down-town construction, change, and turmoil surrounding the new arena.

Here at Brentwood Hills, who could have imagined one year ago at this time the changes that would take place in our midst? Walls taken out in the auditorium and parking lot construction seem minor compared to our efforts to assimilate so many new families and faces that God brought to us. Even greater changes have taken place spiritually for so many through whom God has willed and worked his good pleasure this year.

One dare not dwell on the changes too long because fear and insecurity so closely accompany the unknowns that surround change. It is good to know and trust that perfect love casts out fear, and that, while physical circumstances may constantly change, our faith and hope rest in the Changeless one. Jesus is Lord--the anchor of our souls, the changeless light who brightens our paths and secures our walk with God, come what may, in 1995.
