You have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.
1 Peter 1:23
I love gerbera daisies…when they are in bloom. The problem is they only bloom for a short while then they begin to droop.
Our earthly lives are a lot like drooping, short-lived flowers but, if we have trusted Christ we shall have eternal life.
We don't achieve eternal salvation by works but by faith...it is free. Romans 1:17 says, "the just shall live by faith."
God's Word is eternal also. It goes on and on forever. It is a "love letter" to us from God. We should read it in reverence and love. Linger over its words. Savor them because you are being addressed by One who loves you very much. According to 1 Corinthians 1:7-13, God is love and love "endures all things." Faith and hope will cease in heaven, but love lasts forever. Hebrews 4:12 says, "God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon's scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God's Word. We can't get away from it—no matter what." John 1:1 says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." The Word of God is alive, enduring, eternal, never-ending, permanent, immortal, perpetual, undying.
Everything else will fade away. but praise God, my salvation and the Word is secure in this fading, ever-changing world.
