Immutability is ascribed to Christ, and we remark that He was evermore to His people what He now is, for He was the same yesterday.  Distinctions have been drawn by some exceedingly wise men (as measured by their own estimate of themselves) between the people of God who lived before the coming of Christ and those who lived afterwards.  We have even heard it asserted that those who lived before the coming of Christ do not belong to the church of God!  We never know what we shall hear next, and perhaps it is a mercy that these absurdities are revealed one at a time in order that we may be able to endure their stupidity without dying of amazement.  Why, every child of God, in every place, stands on the same footing: the Lord has not some children best-beloved, some second-rate offspring, and others whom He hardly cares about. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
