We live in a sinful, restless world. Every morning when we wake up, something around us changes. Whether it is the loss of a loved one, a change in jobs, or the dog is finally house broken. Further away from our families scary things are changing. The Supreme Court goes against the Bible on marriage. (Gen 2:24, Matt 19:4-5). Mass shootings, terrorist’s threats and actions, it seems everything you hear on the news is something that goes against the Bible and things that are horrible. With the entire world changing around us, there is One who isn’t – Jesus Christ the Same!
Jesus Christ the Same
According to Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, the word unchangeable means –
Not capable of change; immutable; not subject to variation. God is an unchangeable being.
What God stood for in the Garden of Eden, He stands for today. The laws He gave to Moses, He expects us to live them today. When Jesus taught to love your neighbor, you guessed it, we are to love our neighbors. Nothing about God has changed.
Who was He before He was born of Mary? He was God. Who was He before He lived and worked among men? He was God. Who was He when He hung on the cross? He was God. Who is He today? He is God. The same God with the nail pierced hands and feet, the scarred side, the same loving heart. He is the same God who is always by our side.
God is not the one who changed, the world has changed.
Heavenly Father, You are the same. Help us to know You and Your unchanging ways. Help us to deepen our love for You and that it may always be the same.
