In this message, Pastor Jeff shares one of the unique characteristics of God; He is immutable (unchanging).  while everything around us is in a state of flux or change including ourselves, God is not.  Pastor Jeff teaches of three things that are everlasting and unchanging because they are from God.
  1. God’s Word is Immutable
  2. God’s Plan is Immutable
  3. God’s reward is Immutable

“The fabric of which this world is made is ever passing away; like a stream of water, drops are running away and others are following after, keeping the river still full, but always changing in its elements. But God is perpetually the same. He is not composed of any substance or material, but is spirit—pure, essential, and etherial spirit—and therefore he is immutable. He remains everlastingly the same. There are no furrows on his eternal brow. No age hath palsied him; no years have marked him with the mementoes of their flight; he sees ages pass, but with him it is ever now. He is the great I AM—the Great Unchangeable.”

–C. H. Spurgeon, “The Immutability of God,” in The New Park Street Pulpit Sermons, vol. 1 (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1855), 2.

 
“Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee,
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not,
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.”
–Thomas Chisolm
