‘All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.’
PSALM 119:160

A publishing house advertised: ‘Ten books to read before you die’. And the Bible didn’t make the list! Amazing; if there’s one book you should read it’s the Bible! When a well-known Christian author replaced her favourite cookbook with a ‘New and Updated’ version, she said: ‘It wasn’t the same. It had been adapted for convenience. And people are trying to do the same with God’s Word; adapt it to make it more convenient, time-saving, and easier to follow.

The truth is, God’s Word never changes. The results of sin are the same: ‘The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ…’ (Romans 6:23 NKJV). God’s plan of salvation hasn’t changed: ‘By grace you have been saved through faith…not of works, lest anyone should boast’ (Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV).

His method for finding guidance is in the same place: ‘The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul. The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes’ (Psalm 19:7-8 NKJV). His solution for anger is still the same: ‘Rest in the Lord…Cease from anger, and forsake wrath…it only causes harm’ (Psalm 37:7-8 NKJV).

His method for finding peace hasn’t changed: ‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known…and the peace of God…will guard your hearts and minds…’ (Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV). The Psalmist said, ‘All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.’ Bottom line: ‘new and improved’ simply isn’t in the Book!
