Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. – Matthew 24.35
As we look around us we see a whole world of things that and wonderful and beautiful and precious. There is nothing wrong with treasuring the material things that God has given us.
We mustn’t forget however that everything we see around us will be gone one day. We don’t know how long they will last, but one day it will all be gone. One day heaven and earth will pass away and be replaced by a new heaven and a new earth.
We catch a glimpse that even in our lives. Things that were once so important have passed away and are forgotten. Even friends and associates pass away and as we get older we start to lose more and more family and friends.
However, with everything else passing away there is one that that will never pass away because it is preserved in heaven forever. God’s words will never pass away.
That is such a source of strength. The word of God that we read today is the same word of God that has existed for thousands of years. It is preserved in heaven forever and faithfully preserved for us here on earth.
Heaven else will pass away, but Jesus and His word will never pass away. Praise God I have something in which to put my faith that will never, ever fail.
