Past events intrigue me. An internet search reveals that on May 17, 1525, the duke of Lutherans beat rebels in the Battle at Zabern! Alaska became a U.S. territory on May 17, 1884. Israel and Lebanon signed a peace treaty on this day in 1983.

I marvel at how much this world has changed and the pace at which it has occurred. My dad told stories of how he rode a donkey to school. That way of life doesn’t seem possible only 85 years ago!

Even though our world changes rapidly, God is changeless and is always with us. Because of the sacrifice of His Son, we know that, when Jesus comes again to gather His people, we will live with Him in all eternity. See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are (1 John 3:1a).
