And all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ. (1 Corinthians 10:3-4)
Paul teaches that Christ was with the children of Israel in the desert, providing for them. God has been constant in His love and care for us since the very beginning. However, God is also constant in His commandments to obey Him.
Sometimes we think there is an Old Testament God and a New Testament God because it seems the relationship between God and people changed. While our understanding may change, God never does – “He was and is and is to be, and still the same” the old hymn tells us.
Constant and consistent God, help us to understand the plans You have for us and to follow the commandments You have given from the beginning – to love You and each other with all our hearts. May we be Your representatives to all the world. Amen.
