What Can And Cannot Change In Our Relationship With God

In a chart entitled 'Our Relationship with God,' Dr. Chapell lists what can change and what cannot change. Very Clarifying.
What Can Change in our relationship with God:
our fellowship
our experience of his blessing
our assurance of his love
his delight in our actions
his discipline
our sense of guilt

What Cannot Change in our relationship with God:
our sonship
his desire for our welfare
his actual affection for us
his love for us
our destiny
our security
--Bryan Chapell, Holiness by Grace: Delighting in the Joy That Is Our Strength (Crossway, 2001), 196

This is very helpful. Learn what cannot change in your relationship with God and let it comfort you in difficult times. Learn what can change In your relationship with God you can have greater fellowship, greater experience's of God's blessing, greater assurance of his love, experiencing his delight in your actions and his discipline and your own sense of guilt which can change for better or worse.
