Dec 1 Devotion: Some Things Never Change

Rom. 1:18-25- For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 ¶ Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Some Things Never Change!

-v. 25


  1. Master hasn’t changed!

Mal. 3:6– For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Heb. 13:8– Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

  1. Message hasn’t changed!

1 John 1:5– This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

  1. Mission hasn’t changed!

Heb. 7:25– Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

  1. Miracle hasn’t changed!

John 3:2-3– The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

  1. Mercy hasn’t changed!

Eph. 2:4-9– But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

*Justice cried; “No, No, Never!” but Mercy replied; “Then, Now, and Forever!”

I’m glad we can count on the things of God for He and they never change! -Pastor Doug Foster
