Readings: Hebrews chapter 6 verses 13-20

Most people don’t like change in their lives;

• Ill: One man once observed that the only people who DO like change;

• Are "wet babies" … and even they aren’t too excited about it.

• But one of the certainties of life is every changes!

• You can embrace change or you can resist it with all your might;

• But it is gonna happen anyway – because that is life!

• For some change is a pleasant experience that brings freshness and relevance;

• For others it is negative experience as we seem to lose the ‘safe and familiar’.

Ill:

• But one thing is for sure everything changes:

• Quote: Did you know?

• Did you know? More information has been produced in the last thirty years;

• Than in the previous five thousand years.

• Did you know?

• More than one-half the scientists who have ever lived are alive today.

• Did you know?

• Ninety per cent of all the items in the supermarket today did not exist ten years ago.

• Did you know?

• It is estimated that fifty per cent of college graduates;

• Are going into jobs which did not exist when they were born.

Life is full of change.

• Everything changes. Change is inevitable.

• ill: Every time you look at a photograph – you see an illustration of that change!

• You're not the same person as you were five years ago.

• Certainly not the person you were 10, 20, 30 yrs ago.

Ill:

People change as they get older– photos.

• ill: Eyes grow weaker.

• ill: Hearing gets harder.

• ill: The teeth get fewer.

• ill: The hair changes colour - either by your own hand, or time's hand.

• ill: For us guys – the hair gets thinner (ill: nose & ears!)

Now:

• In a constantly changing world;

• It is comforting to know that there is one who does not change!

• Quote: Malachi chapter 3 verse 6.

• “I the Lord do not change”

• The technical term is ‘immutable’.

• Meaning: ‘Something whose state cannot be modified after it is created.’

• If you want to know how that description applies to God;

• Gives us a good example of the unchanging nature of God,

• He does this by pointing us to the story of Abraham.

• Where he tells us four truths about the ‘immutable – unchanging’ God.

(1). God’s Promises Never Change (vs 13-15).

“When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, saying, ‘I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.’ And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised”

If you know the story of Abraham:

• You will probably know that he did not start life with that name;

• He was born with a similar but shortened version – Abram.

• But one day God changed his name and we will look at that in a moment.
