1 Peter 1:22-25
22 You have made yourselves pure by obeying the truth. So you have an honest and true love for your brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply, from the heart. 23 You have been born again by means of the living word of God. His word lasts forever. You were not born again from a seed that will die. You were born from a seed that can’t die. 24 It is written, “All people are like grass. All of their glory is like the flowers in the field. The grass dries up. The flowers fall to the ground. 25 But the word of the Lord stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:6–8) And that word was preached to you.
* When we obey God’s word we are cleansed from sin and can truly love. Believers are encouraged to love in this manner.
* The born again life is eternal.
* The word of the Lord lasts forever
It’s all about God’s word! The enduring, life changing and eternal word of God. This passage of Scripture explains that the Good News is the word. God’s word is alive and if believed can change your life from temporary to forever. Our lives change when we believe God’s word.
God’s word remains forever. Good to know in this changing and fast past life we live. That something, remains constant and that is God’s word. How reassuring is this! I am reminded just how powerful God’s word is and to read & heed.
Thank you for your word God. Thank you that it changes us and takes us into eternity. Amen
