Verse Of The Day : Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever – Hebrews 13 : 8
LISTEN : One of the qualities of Jesus Christ is immutability; that is, not capable of or susceptible to change. Man can change but God cannot. He can change the unchangeable but can’t change or be changed by anyone or anything. God is forever reliable. He was reliable yesterday, he is reliable today and will be reliable in eternity yet to come.
Our verse of the day said, ” Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever ( Hebrews 13: 8 ). Jesus Christ is the Word of God and the second person of the Trinity. The bible book of St. John gave this account about him and said, ” In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God (John 1: 1, 2). This means that Christ had been with the Father in eternity past before his human birth.
He is the same yesterday, today and forever. What he was when he was with his early disciples in the world is what he is to us today. He is still the way, the truth and the life: the sole access to the Father (John 14:6). He is still the healer and the powerful Son of God who was dreaded by demons and evil spirits because he was greatly anointed of God and went about everywhere doing good and healing those that were oppressed by the devil (Acts 10 : 38 ). Beloved, the ever presence of the Holy Spirit of God with us demonstrates the continuous presence of Jesus Christ with us today.
He is the same and changed not. He was a compassionate Saviour and still the same today. He feels our pains and hurt when we hurt. Friend, run to him with your burdens. Remember, Jesus Christ is always the same; he is the unchangeable Christ Jesus.
