Once upon a time, we could go to bed with a modicum of certainty of what the world would look like tomorrow. One day was relatively the same as the next and the one before it. Change always came, but it came slowly, sometimes so slowly we did not even notice. This is no longer the case. In our hyper-connected and always-on world, change comes rapidly and constantly. We are seeing social and political changes that used to take decades now occur in a matter of weeks. It’s fascinating to observe, but unsettling for most and frightening for many.
It has often been said that the only constant in the world is change itself. In a sea of such change, we all need an anchor. We need an unchanging point of reference. The only safety in our changing world is our changeless God. For disciples of Jesus, God is our foundation. He never changes. Despite the ebb and flow of human response and activity throughout history, God has remained the same. He is changeless.
