We’re gonna do a little math today. What’s that property of mathematics that says if A = B and B = C, then A = C? Okay, I just looked it up; it’s the Transitive Property. So let’s apply the Transitive Property to God. He has always been; He will always be. He does not change. So whatever He has always been, He will always be. Have I lost you yet? No? Okay, good.
So now let’s put it into tangible terms. For instance, to Adam and Eve, God was a Creator. Although we’re too late to see the universe come into being, we can still see Him creating. Nature, newborns, and even us. ~ “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation“ ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17
To Noah, God was a protector. He will be that for you, too. ~ “You are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.” ~ Psalm 59:16
For Joseph, God had a plan. He has one for you, too. ~ “For I know the plans I have for you… plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you a hope and a future.”~ Jeremiah 29:11
To Moses, God was a miracle who could not be explained. Be amazed. ~ “He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.” ~ Job 5:9
To David, God was forgiveness. He still forgives. ~ “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.” ~ 1 John 1:9
To Daniel, God was to be worshiped. He still deserves that. ~ “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.” ~ Psalm 100:2
Whatever characteristic of God that you see; whatever word you could use to describe Him as you read through Scripture, you can expect that of Him now, and in the future. ~ Merciful ~ Patient ~ Just ~ Provider ~ Majestic ~ Redeemer ~ Truth ~ Wisdom ~ Shepherd ~ and yes…. Forever Unchanging ~
