Jesus Christ: The Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever

Originally preached in April 1738, Jonathan Edwards’ sermon “Jesus Christ: The Same Yesterday, To-day, and Forever” expounds Hebrews 13:6. Edwards draws out the doctrine that Jesus Christ is the same now that he ever has been and ever will be. Specifically, Christ is unchangeable in his divinity, in his office as Mediator, and his blood is as sufficient now as when it ran warm from his wounds, and so the covenants of redemption and grace stand forever. In light of the stability of Christ’s person and work for us, he is therefore fit to be our surety. While our profession of faith may wax and wane, Christ has not changed. The Jesus who invites you to come to him is he who accepts you. In the end Christ’s love is as strong now as it was when he went to the cross.

I thoroughly enjoyed your discussion on this sermon. Jesus, the same Yesterday, Today and Forever. It prompted me to read it as you discussed it and then copy it so that I could mark it up. I have practically highlighted in yellow the entire document. It was a challenge to read and digest, but so well worth it. We have so deviated from this doctrine in our churches today. This helped me a lot and lead me to purchase the Life and Times of Jonathan Edwards on my Ipad. Thank you again for leading me into a whole new adventure of Christian living and reading.
