A NEW SONG - Monthly Devotion

Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, forever!”
Hebrews 13:8

Everything about Jesus is glorious. His power, mercy, love, wisdom, knowledge—you name it. He is always that, He is always the same. Men are like the wind, they are continually changing. Jesus is like the rock, He is forever the same. Four ways in which He changes not:

 CHRIST IS THE SAME IN HIS HATRED OF SIN: God hates sin; there will be no sin in heaven. (Rev. 21:27). As a matter-of-fact, God hates sin so much that when His only begotten Son took upon himself the hideous sins of the whole world and carried them to the cross, God turned His back on Him and let Him die alone! God cannot condone sin. (Matt. 27:46). Christ is God and His attitude toward sin is precisely the same as the Father. (John 17:14).
 CHRIST IS THE SAME IN HIS LOVE FOR THE SINNER. God loved us poor lost sinners so much He sent His Son to die for us. (John 3:16). Even while we were His enemies, He laid down His life for us. (Rom. 5:10). God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (II Peter 3:9). Friends, we must have the same love for the lost. God’s love for the lost has not faded, nor should ours. (Acts 4:12).
 CHRIST IS THE SAME IN HIS DEMANDS ON HIS CHILDREN. When we accept the Lord Jesus as our Savior it is understood that we will follow Him and serve Him the rest of our days. It just follows that, if He is good enough to save us, He is good enough to lead us, to show us His will for our life. Jesus never tried to hide the fact that if we accepted Him we would serve Him. (Matt. 10:38). As plain as day, Jesus challenged His disciples, with, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me.” (Matthew 16:24).
 CHRIST IS THE SAME IN HIS LOVE FOR HIS CHILDREN. When I went to Sunday School as a little child, we sang the song, “Jesus Loves Me”. I always tried to be good so Jesus would love me, but I failed miserably time and again. Then I came to realize that Jesus loves me even when I was naughty. Praise God! Now I am 96 years old, and I know that Jesus is the same, He loves me when I’m good, and He loves me when I sin. Peter assures us that “He careth for you.” (I Peter 5:7). The writer to the Hebrews assures us that, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Heb. 13:6). Everything changes, but our dear Lord Jesus ever remains the same—even in eternity. (Romans 8:35-39; Psalm 103:13).

But, while we revel in this wonderful thought, that Jesus Christ will never change and that He is ever by our side—how many do you suppose are lost at sea, at their wits end, floundering and dying in utter despair because they do not have a personal relationship with the unchanging Christ. We, who know Him, MUST share Him! (Matt 28:18-20).

You can do that by joining hands with us proclaiming the Good News of the Gospel all over the world via both radio and television! You can do it by praying, telling others of our service, and giving. Friends, we can carry on only as long as God’s people supply our needs. We have no other source of income. Please ask God what He wants you to do. He will show you what part you should have in this ministry. Our thanks to all of you who have helped us to this point, and to all who will help us carry on, perhaps until Jesus comes again. (I Thess. 4:15-18).

I’ll be looking for you this weekend!

In Our Savior’s Love,

Harold E. Salem, pastor

LETTERS FROM OUR VIEWERS

THANK YOU FOR WRITING…
A gentleman called who needed assurance of salvation.
LONDON, ENGLAND

I am incarcerated in Massachusetts and I have become a new born again Christian as of the last few months of 2016. I caught your Christian Worship Hour program on our channel. I am 28 years old.
GARDNER, MASSACHUSETTS

I am a chronic relapser from meth, alcohol, drugs. I am also a backslidden Christian! “I NEED JESUS!” So I said the Sinner’s prayer while I was watching you on Daystar. Please prayer team pray that God (Jesus) heals me so I can do His will and not my own!!
REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA

I have so many blessings. PLUS!! I will never know what harm He has kept me from
PENSICOLA, FLORIDA

I have backslidden and want to have a new start. Have been suicidal. What happens if you do commit suicide? Do you go to heaven? Family has rejected me. So lonely, have a dog, but she has been sick. I think that she dying. That is why I have been thinking about dying with her. I have no one on earth! I’m homebound. Thank you for reading.
DULUTH, MINNESOTA

I am very, very, very grateful that you led me to the Lord. I am learning so much from “The Christian Worship Hour”. You are having an impact on people all over the world. You showed me God’s grace, mercy, and most of all His love. I would not be a Christian today were it not for your efforts. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Your brother in Christ.
GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA

Recently my husband responded to your message of salvation and gave his heart to Christ. Since then, he has had many questions about the Christian life and so he wants to know if you could send him that literature about becoming a born-again believer. We both believe it will help him and give him direction. Thank you and God bless you. See you next Sunday!
ALDEN, IOWA

I’ve been listening to you for at least 10 years and never get tired of your services. You have been there for me through the loss of my husband and later the loss of my son—both to cancer. Thanks to God for using you and the Christian Worship Hour to reach me and others world side with His love. May God continue to use you so more will know of His saving grace.
SUPERIOR, WISCONSIN

Thank you for reminding us that Jesus holds on to us and will never let us go if we have been saved even if we sometimes fall. Praise the Name of Jesus.
FONTANA DOOR, NORTH CAROLINA

I heard you tell of a book you have about committing suicide. I had a grandson who was a Christian commit suicide in 2008. I thought he went to hell but you said in this book that not all who commit suicide go to hell. Please send me the book.
BENBROOK, TEXAS

I prayed to give all my sin to Jesus. I would love to get the starter packet please to help stay with Jesus.
SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA

Your service is such a blessing to us. You’ve taught me to look up instead of down and out instead of in. Thank you Jesus.
GRAND FORKS, MINNESOTA

Please pray for me. I love and trust GOD! But feel I’m not worthy!
HUNGRY HORSE, MONTANA

I am a Christian since 1966. I enjoy your word and know the Lord has given all ministries a part to play for the lost. My family is all lost. But I know spiritually they are saved. Thank you Jesus. Thank you all, thank you, Pastor Salem. The Lord has blessed you with health and the ability to preach the Word. I attend Times Square Church, in New York City. We also are blessed to hear the pure Word. See you in heaven. In Christ.
NEW YORK CITY
