Unrivalled (God is Unchangeable) – (p3)

God is “unchangeable

Everything in the world changes but God is immutable – unchanging over time and unable to be changed.

  • Psalm 18:31
  • Matthew 7:24-27
  • Malachi 3:6
  • James 1:17

Comfort of God’s changelessness

  • There is great comfort in the truth that God does not change.
  • If you’re a believer then you are personally connected to a God who doesn’t change, whatever changes happen in our life we’re to build our lives on that truth

Confidence of God being unchanging

  • We can rely on the unchanging promises of God in the bible, his unchanging love and his unchanging passion for justice.
  • You cannot commit a future sin that will change God’s verdict of how he sees you. The cross is the unchanging truth that God has dealt with every sin, past, present and future.
  • When God pronounces you righteous, you will always be righteous, Romans 8.

Lies we tell ourselves

  1. I can’t change
  • Only 1 person does not change – God!
  • The Gospel changes hearts.
  • Sanctification is the ongoing truth that we can change with the help of the Holy Spirit.
  1. Other humans are ‘always’ and ‘never’
  • When we apply the terms ‘always’ and ‘never’ to other people we speak a lie.
  • Human beings aren’t that consistent, we do frequently and often, but not always or never.
  • 1 Corinthians 13 doesn’t describe human love, only God’s love never fails.

Our God is the never-changing rock

God sustain me in an ever-changing world

God change what never believed possible
