His Promises Are Forever Young
For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes… 2 Corinthians 1:20
Dr. Chester Swor, one of the 20th century’s most inspiring speakers, said he was retiring. His body was lame and weary. “You can’t do that!” I said. “You still have a message.” I remembered E. Stanley Jones, who wrote in his 80s that all the promises of God are true. If God gave a message and a promise in one’s youth, the promise still stands. The reason is that all the promises are deposited in Jesus Christ. As long as Christ lives—and that’s forever—the promises stand. Chester Swor and E. Stanley Jones discovered afresh in their most senior years that Jesus and His promises are forever young.
