“How depressing and wearisome to the spirit that all things are corruptible, that men are changeable, you, my hearer, and I! How sad that change is so often for the worse!… [But] the text speaks of the opposite, of the changelessness of God. The spirit of the text is unmixed joy and gladness. …no change touches Him, not even the shadow of a change; in unaltered clearness He, the father of lights, remains eternally unchanged…. With us men it is not so…. This thought is terrifying, all fear and trembling.”
