The Same Today

Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Hebrews 13:7-8 (ESV)



You are the same today,
always the light of salvation.
You nurture us in spirit
as You did in flesh.

You are the same today,
speaking in places of worship,
listening when prayers are uttered.
You are the bread of life,
the wine
poured out for all.
You wash the feet of those in need.

You are the same today,
touching those the world discards.
You are present
in every drop of grace
poured out
upon those who seek.

You are the same today,
word spoken in the knowledge of truth.
A promise offered
to those who came before us
and those who will follow.

You are the same today,
always the light of my salvation.
The one who gives strength when I struggle
and guides me
along the road to my home.
