The Unchanging Christ
In a day of fluctuating stockmarkets, collapsing economies and devestating disasters it is precious to know that one thing is certain. Jesus never changes!
I. He is changeless in His Teachings
Jesus declared, "You must be born again" (John 3:16) A new birth experience is priority one for every individual. He also demanded repentance. (Luke 13:3) He meant one must have enough sorrow for sin to turn from it. In addition he required that we be pure in heart. With less than pure motives we can never make Heaven our home.
II. He is changeless in His love
He reached out to the unloveable leper and cleansed him. (Matt. 8:1-3) He spoke to the sinful, aldultrous woman and lifted her load of guilt (John 8). Even today he reaches out to a world laden by sin and offers forgivness (John 3:16).
That is love that knows no limitations.
III.He is changeless in His Power
He can save (Rom. 10:13). He has power to satisfy (John 14:27). He has power to keep us from falling(Jude 24). He has power over all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19).
The same Jesus is available to us today!
Scripture: "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever." Heb. 13:8
