Anywhere in Space and Time

Dear Jason, I was encouraged to hear about the success of the control mission and how you’re doing in Sector 2 in your most recent transmission! Here in Sector 8, things have been continuing on with the mission. We’re gathering good data on chemical components and viability for transporting the material back to base. Hopefully that’s something we can do soon—I really miss seeing you! I was talking with one of my coworkers here the other day about the future and how much things have changed. He mentioned something in Isaiah 40:8 (which reminded me a lot of Earth!) that I’d never thought of before: even with our technological advances, God’s Word is as true now as it was 3,000 years ago, and beyond. True, we have faster travel (10 percent speed of light after all!), we’re mining asteroids in interstellar space, and we’re measuring distances in astronomical units, but people still have the same sin nature they did back then, thousands of years ago and they still need a Savior. And it’s still true that Jesus became human—became one of us—to dwell with us and die for us for you, and me, and our colleagues, and even the folks we sent all the way out to Sector 12 recently, just as He did for the people in 2000—AD and BC! He came to Earth and died so that anyone who trusts in Him can live with God forever. Somehow, I found that to be really interesting to consider. Even with our mind-boggling advances in tech compared to our ancestors, God’s Word, written on parchment with quill pens, still holds the truth of how Jesus came to be with us and forgive us, no matter where we are in space or time. Of course, that begs the question: What do we do about it? Obviously we have to believe it’s true, but we also have to study it (and there’s not much excuse for that since it takes up so little storage on your communicator!). And keep searching for wisdom—in the Bible, in prayer, and in conversation. And keep sharing what you’re learning about Jesus with others. And, above all, keep following God, who never changes! Your friend, Capt. Riley • Andrew Stevens • Many of the events recorded in the Bible took place on Earth, yet God’s Word is not limited to a place or time. How might this affect your life and what you’re facing today? The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God remains forever. Isaiah 40:8 (CSB)
