The Sunday Message

Your love never fails, never gives up
Never runs out on me

-One Thing Remains

Matthew 7:7-8

7. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Many many years ago when I traveled to the west from the Midwest I would always get excited when I started seeing mountains appearing on the horizon. I would drive for what seemed like several hours and never seem to get very close.  When I finally arrived at the mountains, I was in awe of them.

When night would come and the sun would set behind those mountains I would eagerly wake up the next day to see if the mountains were still there. They were, and I would gaze at them for hours.

Since I have lived in Montana for several years the mountains are now just a normal every day thing – something that I take for granted. Every once in a while I stop to admire them, but it’s not like when I was younger and seeing them occasionally.

Likewise when I was a young Christian I was in awe of the Bible, God, and Jesus. Some days I could not wait to read the Bible or pray. Over the years it has become easier and easier to take God for granted, and only talk or pray to God when I needed something.

But God is always there even if we have taken him for granted. As the lyrics to the song “One Thing Remains” reminds us that God’s “love never fails, never gives up Never runs out on me.”
