April 3–The Lasting Word! Grasp That!

This world, this life as we know it, is temporary and transient.

How great is our God who has given us His eternal Word in which to place our trust!

Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.  Mark 13:31

Does the thought that the reality of this world, this life–that we can see, hear, smell, taste and touch–will one day be completely gone scare you?

Or do you already know the hope and promise of the deeper, eternal reality of God’s everlasting, life-transforming Word? Oh! I pray you do!

God really is beyond our full comprehension, beyond our physical realm and beyond our own limited grasp on reality.

God’s thoughts are not our thoughts. God’s ways are not our ways. (Isaiah 55:8)

God is mystical and amazing. (Genesis 1:1-Revelation 22:21!)

And God’s Word is Eternal. It will not only never pass away, but God’s Word is also, right now, Living and Active (Hebrews 4:12), reaching out to save us from our own mortality to give us eternal life!

God’s Word is Love, Grace, Truth and Salvation. And God’s Word is named JESUS!

Jesus is our eternal hope and promise. Jesus promises to be with us right now as we walk through this temporary (and often challenging) life.

Jesus promises to bring each of us, who have trusted in the power and authority of His Word, into our eternal home with Him. 

Hard to grasp, huh? It’s okay. Ask God to help you grasp His Word–His eternal reality.

The truth of God’s mystical and amazing Word shakes our senses and our sensibilities, our logic and our perception of tangible reality.

The truth of God’s living and active Word, Jesus Christ, shakes us–and SAVES us–from all that will pass away in a flickering moment and brings us into God’s everlasting realm of reality that will never pass away.

Jesus is the Word of God who spoke everything into being in the first place, and Jesus is the lasting Word of God who will call His people into everlasting life with Him!

Grasp that! Be grasped by it!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                                Sylane
