God's Faithfulness Object Lesson Script
I have some movies here. Well what’s different about them. Well they’re all in different formats aren’t they? This one is a VHS, you need a VHS player for it. This one is a DVD and you need a DVD player for this one. And this one is a Blue-ray, you need a Blue-ray player to watch it. All this has been invented in the past 20 years. What do you think you’d invent next? When a new version is made the old one stops being made. Eventually no-one will want a VHS anymore. So people who want to watch movie or tv shows will have to keep up with the change.
Everything changes. There is always something new coming. It can be hard to stay with the latest trends, be it clothes music or even what words we say. Don't you think it would be funny and a little weird if I said groovy all the time, like it was the 1960s? But if I said “cool” that would be totally normal right? Well this world is constantly changing what’s cool doesn't stay cool forever.
People changed too. But do you know who always stays the same? God. You can see in the Bible that God stays consistent. You can always count on him to stand by his word, and you can always count on him to love you. If you feel alone this week, remember that God is always there for you he is unchanging 2nd Timothy 2:13 says, “if we are faithless he remains faithful he cannot deny himself.” So be thankful today that God isn't like the world as if there are a new version of him every few years. God doesn't change at all.
