3M Bible Exposition Service
Recap from February 2, 2014
This last week a neighbor was commenting how drastically the climate and landscape of Plymouth, MN have changed since they moved here from down South back in August. Even glancing back at pictures of the youngest ones in our church from just a few months ago reminds us that we are very prone to change. We are, indeed, a people of change living within a world of change.
On February 2, Ben Gunderson reminded us of this reality and led us to consider whether or not there is anything in our universe that is constant, enduring, and unchanging. Turning to Psalm 102, Ben demonstrated the sorrowful plight of the psalmist, who has deeply contemplated the frailty and constantly changing nature of his life. By the end of verse 11 Ben asked if there is anything in our universe that is unchanging and upon which we can fully depend. He then led us to see how the rest of the Psalm answers clearly by providing stark contrast and lifting the fallen spirit of the psalmist.
We came to clearly see throughout the rest of the Psalm that although we are people of change living in a world of change, our God is always and forever the same.
Ben demonstrated how the rest of the Psalm highlights the way this reality should affect our thinking, our theology, and our everyday living. As we live out the rest of this week in the midst of change, interacting with people of change, may we live confident in and dependent on the God of the universe—our God—Who never has and never will change!

Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.
