Peacemaker Ministries Devotional: Always the Same

by P. Brian Noble / October 19, 2020


Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.(Hebrews 13:8,ESV)


Jesus Christ is the same. He has always been the same. He will forever be the same. Jesus is the same today and yesterday and forever. This is so reassuring. Think about the eternalness of Jesus. Jesus doesn’t say to the adulteress woman, “I had compassion in the past, but for you, now, I am not sure.” He wasn’t only addressing the Pharisees of long ago when he said, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence” (Matthew 23:25, ESV). Jesus says the same to us when we worry about cleaning our outsides and not changing our insides. Jesus, who calmed the storms in his disciples’ lives, will calm the storms in your life.


How does Jesus’ unchangeableness apply to our relationships? Think about this: Jesus proclaims, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10. ESV). The thief—the devil—wants to steal, kill, and destroy relationships, but Jesus desires you to have abundant life, both personally and in all your interactions with others and with God. I know you don’t think that Jesus came so that your relationship with others would stink. So here it is: Jesus is the same every day, always has been and always will be, and He wants you to experience abundant life in every aspect of your life, including your relationships.


Jesus, thank you for always being the same. I live in a world that seems to change constantly, but I can rely on youneverchanging. I ask that you bring your abundant life into my relationships. I really need your help to show your life to others.… (Continue praying.)
