New Year, Old God.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”
God the Father doesn’t change; a new year doesn’t bring us a new God. He is the same, he always will be. And so is Jesus:
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
The seasons come and go: people are born, people grow old and people die. We change our minds, change our outlooks, and change our ideas. God never does. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Is that not an encouraging thought?
