08 Jul Yesterday. Today. Forever – 7/8/20
Hebrews 13:8 – “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
Jesus, the divine face of God wrapped in flesh, is the same for all time. Because he’s the same yesterday today and forever, we know he is unchanging, faithful to his character and promises.
As a parent, consistency is key. If my expectations constantly change, my children become insecure about how to please me. But God is the ultimate consistent, loving Father. He is good and just, but He is also merciful. His character in the Old Testament is “fleshed out” in Jesus in the New Testament.
See Jesus and you see God’s heart—the same yesterday today and forever.
Holy God, thank you that you are the same yesterday, today, and forever; you showed us your extravagant love by sending Jesus, your beloved son, to demonstrate who You really are and to make a way for us to be in friendship with You. We are grateful that You are unchanging, consistent in your lavish love and mercy to sinners who trust in Jesus. Amen.
