Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Jesusis the incarnate God, which is immutable. What does immutable here refer to? I saw a passage: “God’s wisdom, God’s wondrousness, God’s righteousness, and God’s majesty shall never change. His essence and what He has and is shall never change. As for His work, however, it is always progressing in a forward direction, always going deeper, for He is always new and never old.” “There are those who say that God is immutable. That is correct, but it refers to the immutability of God’s disposition and His substance. Changes in His name and work do not prove that His substance has altered; in other words, God will always be God, and this will never change.”
That God is immutable refers to the immutability of God’s substance. Even though He comes down to the earth incarnate, His identity and position shall never change. Through the continued advance of God’s work, we can know God’s disposition more clearly, such as His disposition of majesty and wrath, of mercy and lovingkindness, and His attitude toward different kinds of people. In fact, what God has and is has always been like this, but we never know before. Thanks be to God!
