23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For,
“All people are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.” 1 Peter 1:23-25
The word of the Lord endures forever. It is the word of God that will stand the test of time. There are many today who reject the truth of God’s word and reject the Lord for that matter. In their pride and arrogance they see no need for a savior and reject the existence of God. For believing in God they would be accountable for their lives and the way they live them, and many today believe that they are simply their own god.
But we who have come to faith in Jesus Christ have been saved by God’s grace. We have been saved by the precious shed blood of Jesus. The glory of this world and the glory of man will fade away. This world will one day be destroyed and the Lord shall create a new Heaven and new Earth. Those who see this world as their home and live for the pleasures of this world will perish with it. They will spend eternity separated from God in the Lake of Fire will the pain and suffering will never end and will be far greater than any can imagine.
God has opened the door of salvation to all who would humble themselves before Jesus and receive what Jesus has accomplished. It requires anyone who would follow Christ to make Him Lord and Savior and give their lives unto Him. Understand the truth of God’s word is vital for us living and experiencing all that God has for us. The greatest detriment to any believer is one who has a wrong understanding of God’s word and His will. For rightly dividing the word of God is key to walking in the freedom and authority we have in Christ.
