“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
Believer, think about and meditate upon your Redeemer as He is described here. He is Jesus, your Jesus; a Saviour, for He shall save His people from their sins. He is Christ also – God your Father’s Christ, and your Christ, the Anointed, the Sent One, the Sealed of Jehovah. He is the same in His glorious Person, the same in His great salvation: “yesterday” – looking back to everlasting, “today” – equally so through all the periods of time, and “for ever” – looking forward to the eternity to come. And, blessed thought, He is the same in His love, in the efficacy of His redemption – His blood to cleanse, His righteousness to justify, His fullness to supply grace here and glory hereafter. And what sums up the precious thought amidst all of your changeableness, your settings, your fears, doubts, and bouts with unbelieving, HE CONTINUES FAITHFUL. He is, He will be, He must be JESUS. Hallelujah!
