Isaiah 40:8 – 8 The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”
Over my lifetime, I have witnessed many fads. I have seen the “Pet Rock”, the “Chia Pet”, and many crazy diets, just to name a few. Unfortunately, I have also witnessed many “fads” inside of the church. People have taken the Word of God and altered it to meet their needs and the needs of their churches. Just like any other fad, a new theology will be appealing to some for a while, but then it must be changed to something new to keep people’s attention.
Today’s passage reminds us that “the word of our God stands forever.” The same truth that was taught by the apostles and writers of the Bible is the same truth that we should all be following and teaching today. No, it might not be as appealing to some today. No, it might not be as exciting to some today. But, God’s Word is still God’s Word. How people in the Bible were encouraged to live is still how we are to live. What was a sin in the Bible is still a sin. How people were saved and reunited with Jesus in the Bible still applies to us. Remember, no matter how many times people try to change the Word of God, “the grass withers”. The only thing that we can stand firm on is the Word of God, which is the Word of God in the Bible, because it “stands forever”.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
