Nothing that happens in the world changes who God is. This is important, because if God were subject to regular change, he could not be an anchor that holds fast in the storms of life. If God were subject to regular change, we could not be confident in our eternal salvation because, God could just change his mind and change the rules of the game.
Normally, during this time of year, our church is celebrating the coming school year and discussing how we can engage our schools in prayer and with the love of Jesus. This year, the start of school is delayed and parents are facing decisions about whether or not they want to send their kids to school in person or virtually. We are still planning to engage our schools with prayer and the love of Jesus, but the world is very different than it was this time last year and it will continue to be different for some time to come.
Though the world is different, God has not been surprised, his love is not diminished, and his plan for the church and the world is the same today as it has always been. The world is different, but God stays the same.
