The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever...
If there is one thing we can be certain of in this life here on earth, it is that EVERYTHING eventually grows old, fades away, changes, or dies. Nothing ever really remains the same. We can try every method known to man and still the inevitable happens. I love watching each season of the weather as it comes and goes. The bright, hot summer sun and the colorful splashes of blooming flowers give way to the warm golden days of fall, with chilly evenings and promises of the coming holidays. The cold days of winter bring the pleasures of Christmas, and watching snow fall as your snug inside your home in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot coco and a favorite book. But eventually the warm days of spring blow in with rain showers and tiny buds making their way onto all the tress and plants. The seasons come and go and the same is true for all of us. I can't believe how quickly my two new grand babies have gone from slumbering new born's not capable of much more than eating and sleeping, to the active, happy, MOBILE babies they are just 6 months later. The others will head back off to school soon on their journey to adulthood that will be here in nothing more than a blink of an eye. My kids are all grown adults now, and I will celebrate my 55th birthday in September. My mom will be 77 in two days and on and on it goes. But of one other thing we can also be very sure of, God's Word ALWAYS remains the same...It NEVER changes, NEVER comes back to us empty....We can count on it to be true for now and forever more. The word of our God certainly has endured. It has survived centuries of manual transcription, of persecution, of ever changing philosophies, of all kinds of critics, of neglect both in the pulpit and in the pew, of doubt and disbelief - and still, the word of our God stands forever!
“Written on material that perishes, having to be copied and recopied for hundreds of years before the invention of the printing press, did not diminish its style, correctness, nor existence. The Bible, compared with other ancient writings, has more manuscript evidence than any ten pieces of classical literature combined.” (Josh McDowell, Evidence that Demands a Verdict)
Yes, the Word of God will endure unto all generations, and I am filled with a happiness and peace on that knowledge...
