Acts 1:10-11, “And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”
Jesus had just ascended back to Heaven, and disciples were gathered around to watch. After Christ’s ascension, two men, believed to be angels, came and asked the disciples what they were still doing looking up. They said that “this same Jesus” would come back again just like He left. There are so many good thoughts from this verse.
It is good to know that even nearly 2,000 years later we can still say, “This same Jesus.” Jesus has never changed throughout the years. Jesus will never change. Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” In a world filled with changing people, trends, etc., it is good to know that we have a Jesus that doesn’t change.
Jesus is Someone that we can always count on. He is a Friend that sticketh closer than a brother. That truly is an amazing thought. One of the closest people to me is my sister, but the Bible says that Jesus will stick closer. He will never change. He is always the same, and we can trust Him. We ought to live our life to please Him. The same Jesus that was served and obeyed 2,000 years ago is the same Jesus that we ought to serve and obey in our lives today.
