Timeless Treasures

All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.
I Peter 1:24-25

Our focal verse is one of my all-time favorites!

Our society changes rapidly. A new computer becomes outdated in a year. Phone technology is updated almost daily. The economy experiences highs and lows. Fashionable clothes go out of style. Cherished items rust, mold and decay. Beautiful spring flowers shrivel and die.

Is there anything that is secure and unchanging? Yes! God’s word! We can trust in God’s word to stay the same always. The word of the Lord endures forever. We can’t even count on the earth to be around forever. Jesus tells us heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away (Matthew 24:35).

Why is His word so important?

God’s word is truth. I was watching the political candidates this week, and I was left wondering if anyone spoke the truth. We can be sure that the Bible is true because Jesus said it Himself. Your word is truth (John 17:17).

God’s word is light. Do you ever feel like you are walking around without knowing which way to go? God’s word will guide us. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path (Psalm 119:105). We may only receive a little light at a time, but He will continue to give us light as we go. The unfolding of your words gives light (Psalm 119:130).

God’s word is cleansing. The unprofitable things in us are washed away by the washing with water through the word (Ephesians 5:26).

God’s word is our very life! When many of Jesus’ followers turned away, He asked his disciples if they wanted to leave, too. Simon Peter answered Him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life’ (John 6:68).

Father, in our ever-changing world, thank you that your words are sure and eternal.
