“Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
It was a two-day lecture, presentation, and discussion in Theology 303 as the Bible college professor shared the impact of the immutability, or the changelessness, of our awesome God. It was a brief statement shared in the pastor’s office with a young lady who was deeply wounded by the break-up of the one who told her that he would love her forever. It was the tender statement by the loving husband whispered to his hurting wife who feared the changing seasons of life. Only the Lord God is unchanging in His character and Word. In the theology classroom, pastor’s office, and living room of the home of this couple, the unchanging character of the Lord is so blessed. Think of how terrible it would be if He loved us one day and got sick of us the next. Think of what it would be like if He blessed us one day and became bored with us the next! I am so thrilled that He is the same yesterday and today and forever. How about you?
For today: Changes are occurring around me and within me. I’m so glad that I belong to the unchanging Christ. Do you know Him as your Savior?
