Eternally Unchanging

Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us. —Hebrews 6:17-18

The perfect and the absolute and the infinite God cannot become anything else but what He is….

If you remember that, it will help you in the hour of trial. It will help you at the time of death, in the resurrection and in the world to come, to know that all that God ever was, God still is. All that God was and is, God ever will be. His nature and attributes are eternally unchanging. I have preached about the uncreated selfhood of God; I’ll never have to change or edit it in any way…. I go back over some of my old sermons and articles, and I wonder why I wrote them like that. I could improve them now. But I can’t improve on the statement that God is always the same—He is self-sufficient, self-existent, eternal, omnipresent and immutable. There would be no reason to change that because God changes not. His nature, His attributes, are eternally unchanging.

Thank You, Lord, for the strong consolation and hope that is based upon the immutability of Your counsel and the unchangeableness of Your nature. Amen.
