Last Thursday night, Fletcher Magee had a record-setting night. He set the NCAA record for most career 3-pointers ever as his team – Woffard – won their first-round game in the NCAA tournament. What a great night! On Saturday, Fletcher had another record-setting night. He went 0 for 12 on three-pointers – the worst 3-point shooting night in NCAA tournament history – in his team’s loss to Kentucky. What a difference two days made! Isn’t this how it goes in our lives? Highs and lows. Our greatest moments are often followed by our greatest failures. So whom can we really rely on? Not ourselves! Others?
Here’s who: Jesus! “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). Isn’t that what we need? A Savior we can count on! Jesus is the only one who never changes. He’s always good. He never lets you down. He never fails. He always loves and forgives and cares and saves. Others will disappoint you. You will disappoint yourself. But Jesus? He’s the same yesterday and today and forever. So put your hope in him—yesterday and today and forever!
