People change, too. Over the years, I have watched some life-long friends experience a complete transfiguration from the person they were to the person they now are. For some, the change was for the better. For others, it was for the worse.
In the midst of all the change, there is one constant. There is one irrevocable, indisputable truth upon which you can always depend. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
Jesus is immutable in His Person. All that He ever was He is today. And all that He is today He will be forever. Consider this statement from Malachi 3:6, “For I am the LORD, I change not.” That tells us Christ’s attributes are permanent. He is never more or less loving, or holy, or omnipotent, or faithful. He is always the same to perfection.
Christ’s teachings are immutable also. Unlike the vacillating “truths” of the world, biblical truth is constant and absolute. Jesus said so in Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”
And, thank God, His power is immutable. His ability to save, heal, comfort, deliver, provide, or do anything else that is necessary is the same today as it was two-thousand years ago.
Best of all, He who was everything in the yesterday of the past and will be everything in the tomorrow of the future is ours today and forever!
“Yesterday, today, forever,
Jesus is the same,
All may change, but Jesus never!
Glory to His name.”
