In this article, we’re considering the unchanging nature of our salvation. As I think about this subject, I believe that our salvation is based upon three important cornerstones.
God’s Will for Mankind
The covenant God made with His children is unwavering, for God (who cannot lie) has made a promise and then confirmed it by an oath. (see Num 23:19 & Heb 6:13-18)
For I am the Lord, I do not change . . . (Mal 3:6a)
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. (Jam 1:17)
God’s Word is eternal. The Bible reminds us that we should never add to or delete anything from God’s Word. (Deu 4:2; 12:32; Pro 30:5-6)
The Bible also warns us not to confuse the teachings of men with the Word of God. (Mt 15:8-9; Mk 7:6-8)
God’s Word will stand forever; it shall be entirely fulfilled.
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. (Isa 40:8)
. . . having been born again, not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever . . . (1 Pet 1:23)
For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. (Mt 5:18)
Our Savior—Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Heb 13:8)
But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. (Heb 7:24)
Jesus, who is the Living Word, has an unchangeable priesthood and an unchanging character. He is steadfast and trustworthy. He has completed the mission that our heavenly Father gave to Him. He has redeemed mankind and reconciled to the Father all who have accepted Christ as their Savior and Lord. All glory to God!
