God is the same yesterday, today, and forever
March 5, 2023 • Pastor Rodney Julian • Jeremiah 29:10–14
Pastor Rodney concludes our series, SAME with a message on God’s plan for our lives. While life doesn’t always go according to our plans, how many know that God’s plans are better than ours? Sometimes His plan is for us to be patient and wait, sometimes it’s for us to place our hope in Him as we trust Him, and more often than not, He always invites us to seek after Him. He’s a loving God who welcomes our insecurities and doubts. He encourages us to lean into His plans, even when it’s not easy. And we can trust that He’ll work it all out for our good and His glory.

As we continue in our sermon series called “Same” (exploring the unchanging nature of God), we are focusing this week on God’s eternal promises and His unchanging Word, the Bible. This is such an important subject because it’s impossible to grow in our Christian faith without a healthy relationship with God's Word.

Matthew 22 is a popular passage in the life of the church. Jesus gives the two greatest commandments to His followers to live out, and it just so happens to be the mission of our church! As we navigate through Jesus’ words in the passage, we’ll see that the same purpose that Jesus gave to His followers in the New Testament is the same purpose that we live by here at Shadow Hills Church, which is to Love God and Love people.

In todays Scripture reading, Christ gives us a beautiful dissertation regarding His consistency (or sameness) in the area of providing for his children. He addresses our human doubts and anxieties about whether or not God will come through for us when we need Him the most. And this entire passage (in the second half of Matthew chapter 6 is prefaced by Jesus talking to us about how we approach the area of personal finances. This week’s sermon explores 5 practical principles that can bring needed, fresh insight into how we should steward our money and the material things God has entrusted us with.

It’s been said that “Scripture wasn’t given to us to worship truth. It was given to us to give us an accurate picture of the God of the truth!” Think about that for a moment. God wants us to not only know Him as we read His word. He wants us to experience Him in our lives. The key to this is His Presence. In our passage today, we see this Same God teaching Elijah some things that will serve us well in our lives.

The Scriptures teach us that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever! All other things change over time, but we can be confident that Jesus, our God, never will. The reality is that change is simply a part of life. In a world that is ever-changing, often at break-neck speed, it’s amazingly reassuring to know that we worship a perfect, wonderful, gracious Savior who will never change!
