The Word of our God Stands Forever

Isaiah 40:6-8, “A voice says, “Cry!” And I said, “What shall I cry?” All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. 7 The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the LORD blows on it; surely the people are grass. 8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.”
Life doesn’t last long. Or beauty. Youth. Energy. Teeth. Taste buds. Life and it’s joys are all stolen by time as surely and, in the grand scheme of things, as quickly as a flower in the field. We do well to keep this in mind especially in the midst of a world which, having rejected the true God, searches frantically for something else. One of the most common these days is life. “Seize the day” they say. And I’m not saying you shouldn’t. But far more you should seize Christ and His Word. For unlike fragile flowers, Christ’s Word is written in stone, it can never been changed, never fade, never be unsure. And this is the Word which was preached to you. The Word of comfort. The tender Word, “Your sins are forgiven. You are God’s child. You will never die.”
