Message of the Day: We Have Eternal Life Because God’s Word Is Eternal
“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
But the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you. (1 Peter 1:24-25, NKJV)
All human beings are like grass. There is no stability in anything that man does or produces. He himself resembles grass that soon fades and withers; but God and his word endure forever.
The word of God is unmoved, fixed or permanent. Amidst all he troubles on earth, the fading glories of temporary natural objects, and the wasting strength of man, God’s truth remains unaffected. Its beauty never fades; its power is never enfeebled. The gospel is as lovely now as it was when it was first revealed to man, and it has as much power to save as it had when first employed to a human heart.
We see the grass wither, we see the flower of the field decay; we see man, though confident in his strength, and rejoicing in the rigor of his frame, cut down in an instant; we see cities decline, and kingdoms lose their power: but the word of God is the same now that it was first, and amidst all the changes which may ever occur on the earth, it will remain the same.
In view of these truths presented to us, let us show proof that we have been cleansed and have received new life through the unchanging word of God, by acting with sincere love towards each other.
