The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8

All across our Life Groups each week, the members are encouraged to remember Scripture, and keep the sword of God in their hearts. It is the word of God that gives nourishment to our spirit. It is our spiritual food!

The grass withers and the flowers fall” – these words are a potent reminder to us to look beyond the material dimension of life, and into the spiritual dimension where eternity awaits! Just as the grass dies and the flowers shrivel and fall, so will our physical bodies grow old and die, no matter how much care we take. Life on earth will not be forever. The spiritual dimension of our existence is eternal, and those who have the word of God in them will stand eternal, just as the word is eternal. So take hold of God’s word. Live by it and let it come alive in you! You shall stand eternal in the word of God!
