Flourish or Fade #337

24 because “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.” 25 Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you. (1 Peter 1:24-25)

Our life on earth will not last. Like the grass and its bloom, our lives are fading day by day. By contrast, God’s word lives on and on, without interruption, without decay or destruction. The gospel preached by the apostles is as clear, relevant and powerful today as when they first proclaimed it. It saves souls. It changes lives. It holds the sure promises of God. Each of us have a choice today. Choose to put the enduring word of God into our hearts and lives, and thus be adorned for life and fit for eternity. Or, refuse the word of God for the fleeting flower of momentary pleasures of sin that only hasten your eternal destruction. One way is flourishing and forever glorious; the other, always fading until finally, eternal fire. Choose wisely. Choose the word of God and live forever with Him.
