Everything that has to do with this earth is stamped with change. Everything is changing and changeable. Society changes and not always for the better. The older we get, the less we like change. We may not like it, but there are some things must change. In a world of change and changing things, it is good to know there is One that NEVER changes.
The Unchanging and Unchangeable Son of God
1. He is the same in His person (Acts 1:11 - "this same Jesus") - He was righteous and remains righteous - He was gracious and remains gracious
2. He is the same in His purpose - It was his purpose from eternity to save His people from their sins - And if God be unchangeable in that purpose, who can be against us?
3. He is the same in His power - he is the same in His power to redeem sinners from the power, punishment, and pollution of sin - he is the same in His power to restore (i.e. Peter's denial)
4. He is the same in His presence - he is present to support the troubled - he is present to succor the tempted (Heb 4:15-16) - John 14:18 - "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you"
