God is unchanging. The calendar changes, but Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
We are a dependent people, and today we express our dependence by receiving God’s gifts in worship.
This morning the incarnate Son of God has come for us, so that we might be changed into His image. We are a changing people, but we strive to image the unchanging God whose Name we celebrate this morning, Jesus, our Immanuel.
