The Power and Preservation of God’s Word
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever (Isaiah 40:8).
In 1939, at the World’s Fair in New York, a time capsule was buried, which is to be opened 5,000 years from now. And, of course, in that time capsule they included many items of the culture and society of that day—memorabilia to give a slice of life if the world is still in existence in 5,000 years.
In that time capsule, they included one book: The Bible! And when one of the officials was asked, “Why did you put the Bible in that time capsule?” he answered, “The Holy Bible, of all books familiar to us today, will most likely survive through the ages. The Bible we placed in the capsule will be a link between the past, the present, and the future.”
I don’t know what the world will be like in 5,000 years. In fact, I’d venture to say that no one really knows what the world will be like in 100 years. But one thing is clear: God’s Word will endure.
The Word of God stands forever. People have tried to disprove it and destroy it, but it has endured. I can’t think of a better book on which to build a philosophy of life than a book that’s worked so well for so long. So live your life by God’s Word because it’s the only book that will endure forever!
While other philosophies and psychologies come and go, God's word endures forever. So make it the foundation of your life!
