Jesus Never Changes - The One Year Book of Bible Promises

Jesus Never Changes

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Hebrews 13:8

ONE OF THE great doctrines of the Bible is the immutability of Christ. This simply means that he will never change. Like WYSIWYG (“What you see is what you get”) in computer terminology, what you saw of Jesus in the past is who he is now and will be forever.

What does that mean in our lives? For one thing, we can trust that Jesus’ words and character are as trustworthy now as when he was on the earth. We can trust his promises. We can rely on the fact that he is always wise, loving, compassionate, and righteous. He will never exclaim, “I’ve had it with the lot of you. Sin once more and you’re out. I’m taking your names out of the Book of Life.”

No, Jesus’ promise was, is, and will be forever that he is consistent. And he is consistently loving. No matter what we do, he will never give up on us, desert us, or turn against us.

Think about the grandeur of it. How many people have you known who say one thing and do another? Or have reneged on their promises?

Such things can never happen with Jesus. His promise is, “I will always be the person you find on the pages of the Bible. Trust those realities, and live in the confidence that I will always be with you.”
