Sermon Notes

As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies for your sake; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs, for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. – Romans 11:28-29

The IMMUTABILITY of God

1. That’s an unusual word and one that we need to define carefully.

Immutability: God does not change his basic character

His purposes do not change.
He never grows in knowledge or wisdom.
He never differs from himself.
He never improves upon his own perfection.
He never “grows” or “develops” in any respect.

God is...
Always wise,
Always sovereign,
Always just,
Always good,
Always holy,
Always merciful,
Always gracious.

“God’s gifts and God’s call are under full warranty—never canceled, never rescinded.” - Eugene Peterson

2. What did it mean to the Roman Church?

"All Israel will be saved" - Romans 11:26

1) Because the prophets predicted it (vs. 26-27).
2) Because God chose them in love (vs 28).

“they are enemies for your sake; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs” - Romans 11:28

Do you see the paradox: Enemies yet loved. Loved enemies.

"for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.”

The prophets predicted it. The Bible promises it. God’s unchanging character guarantees it.

3. What It Means to me?

First, God’s promises do not change.

Second, God’s purposes do not change.

Third, God’s character does not change.

God feels about us the same way he did when He sent Christ to the earth.

What difference does this doctrine make in practical terms?

If God became less holy, sin would no longer be sin.
If God became less just, sin would no longer be punished.
If God became less sovereign, man could take his place.

On one hand this is very bad news for the rebellious sinners, BUT on the other hand, this is very good news to those who want to be saved!
