We live in a fast-changing world. For example, just in my lifetime transportation has changed from horse and buggy to jets and travel from earth to the moon. The telephone has evolved from the party line that I grew up with to one that serves as a dictionary, camera, and a myriad of other uses. Television has become our entertainment, and the computer has revolutionized our world. The microwave oven has made preparing meals faster and easier. These are just some of the changes that have transpired during my life of 94 years.
Our scripture today speaks of the superiority of Jesus above the angels and as the creator and regulator of the universe. But what is emphasized is the eternality of the Song of God, born of the virgin, Mary. I find it comforting to know that ISIS will pass away as well as the sin and ugliness in today’s world, but we can know that our Savior Jesus Christ will never pass away. Hallelujah!
LET US PRAY
O God, thank you for sending your Son, the Eternal One, to earth some two thousand years ago to forgive us our sins when we ask Him. Amen.
