"UNCHANGING: THE LOVE AND COMPASSION OF CHRIST"


UNCHANGING: THE LOVE AND COMPASSION OF CHRIST

                  By A. W. Tozer
 

              But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him
              the form of a servant, and was made  in the likeness of
              men.                                                   ---  Philippians 2:7
           

                 Because change is everywhere around us at all times
              on this earth and among human beings, it is difficult for
              us to grasp the eternal and unchanging nature and
              person of Jesus Christ.

                 Nothing about our Lord Jesus Christ has changed
              down to this very hour. His love has not changed. His
              compassionate understanding of us has not changed.
              His interest in us and His purposes for us have not
              changed.

                 He is Jesus Christ, our Lord. He is the very same Jesus.
              Even though He has been raised from the dead and seated
              at the right hand of the Majesty in the heavens, and made
              Head over all things to the Church, His love for us remains
              unchanged.

                 It is hard for us to accept the majestic simplicity of this
              constant, wonder-working Jesus. We are used to getting
              things changed so that they are always bigger and better!

                 He is Jesus, easier to approach than the humblest
              friend you ever had! He is the sun that shines upon us,
              He is the star of our night. He is the giver of our life and
              the rock of our hope. He is our safety and our future.
              He is our righteousness,  our sanctification,  our
              inheritance.

                 You will find that He is all of this in that instant that
              you move your heart towards Him in faith! This is the
              journey to Jesus that must be made in the depths of the
              heart and being. This is a journey where feet do not
              count!



              Yours in Christ,
                  Paul N. F.
