Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8
This precious verse showcases the often neglected, but very vital doctrine of the “immutability” of God. In simple terms, the doctrine of immutability means that God Almighty has never, can never and will never change. He is, by His very nature, unchangeable!
This means that He is as holy, as ever, as powerful as ever. He is as loving, as merciful, and full of grace, and as much in control as He has ever been. He is still God and He will always be God. He is absolutely unchangeable.
Why is the immutability so important? Because change implies imperfection and God is absolutely perfect. Therefore, He cannot change, and will not change, ever!
The world around us, even our very lives are in a constant state of flux. Things are always changing for you and me. I find it very refreshing and comforting to know that the God we serve and the Lord we have received as our Savior will never, ever change. Amen!
