There have been many times in this life that has reminded me that the God we worship today is the same God that Abraham and Moses worshipped. The God that we worship is the same God that came to Earth, as king, in the form of a normal child and lived like a normal man rather than royalty like the King that He is. Christ, our King, although was a man, He was not a moral man but God in the flesh so we know that He is not human.
Therefore, because He is not human, we know that God does not change. He is the same today as He has always been. How do I know this? Simple. His word says so: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8). Too many people ask the question about or curious about God being who He says He is and the truth is, without question, yes. We know this because His word says so but we also know this in the billions of changed lives on Earth, today, but from the trillions and trillions of lives changed throughout history.
Ephesians 3:20 reads “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us;” reminds us that God is everything that He says He is but also, He does the same things that He has always done and the things that we ask for and desire trough Him, He will do abundantly more. He does these things not because He owes them to us or because we are holy and He needs us to do them but rather, He does these things because that’s who He is and that’s what He does. He does the things that we cannot imagine or understand but we don’t have to understand.
When we think about the mysteries of life including what God can and cannot do, we don’t have to make this a theology class. We can search the Bible through and through to understand God and we can search throughout history to learn about what God has done for all people. There is too much historical evidence to say Christ did not walk this Earth and there is too much evidence to show to simply dismiss the miracles of Christ. Despite all this, too many people are so quickly to pass or question what is right in front of them but God still offers His grace to us: ”And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 1:14).
Of course, I would never tell anyone to simply trust something because it’s written or others say it and God says the same thing: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1). Yes, this verse is about prophets coming in His name but the same is true for anything else and when someone says something, well, we will know them by their fruit (Matthew 7:16): “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35) which reminds us that God’s word is the same as it has always been and the God that we serve today is the same as He has always been and while testing the spirit is for our benefit, not God’s, the God that we serve is much greater than any of our minds could ever imagine.
Hebrews 13:20-21 reads: “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.“ Friends, that’s the God that We Serve!
