2 Timothy 2:19, Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. KJV
Is there really such a thing as a sure thing??? I mean think about it for a moment. What can you be sure of today? Can we be sure of anything??? Are there definites? Is there such a thing as guarantees? Can there be what I call “Surefires”?
Our world is an uncertain world.
This is evident and manifest in the constant changes that we see, as well as the lack of integrity and degrading moral behavior in the lives of people around us.
Do you remember this??? From “Read my lips, no more taxes” to “you can keep your health insurance if you like it”, there are constant changes happening around us all the time. Constantly evolving around us are the changes in our morality, the way that we dress, the way that we communicate, and especially in the way that we give God reverence. Nothing ever seems constant.
In view of all of this, is there such a thing as a sure thing???
With God there is, let me tell you ladies and gentlemen! It’s a sure thing with God! God’s foundation is the surest thing in the universe. Believe it!
I read a story once that took place at a noonday luncheon at the local Rotary club.
The dishes had been cleared away, and the meeting had been called to order. After the reception of new members and the introduction of visitors, the chairman asked who of those present represented the oldest company in the community.
There was a young man in the back of the room that hesitated a moment, then arose and said: “I believe I do, sir. I am a minister of the gospel. The company I represent was founded some 2,000 years ago. And I am happy to say that it is still flourishing.”
His announcement was greeted with applause, for none of those present were inclined to contradict him. He did, indeed, represent “the oldest company” in the community.
It’s obvious that this company that God is running is a sure thing. It’s built on the best (His Son Jesus) and it will never fail! I’m glad that I have stock in this company!
