SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/14/15- “The Word Of The LORD Remains Forever!” (1 Peter 1:24-25)
Premise Question: Because our existence living life here upon this earth, as humankind, can be characterized as being temporal, and in fact, is likened and compared to being a flower that’s growing in a field of grass, which grows up, blossoms and blooms, and then, eventually withers, fades away and ultimately dies; it should therefore, be incumbent upon each one of us, to become more keenly aware of what our own duration, longevity and mortality might be, and therefore, we must ask ourselves what kind of bloom and fragrance our flower is producing, how long will it last and what kind of residue is it leaving for others to see and smell, after we’re gone?
As the Scriptures say, “People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. But the word of the Lord remains forever.” And that word is the Good News that was preached to you. (1 Peter 1:24-25 NLT)
For just as Papa God’s Holy Word perfectly describes it, all of a humankind’s existence can be likened to a flower growing in a field of grass; which has jointed stems, sheathing leaves and seed-like grains. In like manner, we humans have jointed limbs, sheathing skin and have the ability to reproduce, having offspring. But in all of our miraculous glory, our exquisite beauty and distinct honor, we, like the grass and the flowers of the field, which break forth, grow up, then blossom and bloom, only to begin to lose their luster, as they begin to fade and ultimately die; shall also, as humans, begin to lose our youthful vigor, as we start to shrivel and fade, eventually decay, falling back into the earth, from wince we came. But, the infallible, immutable, all powerful Word of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, shall never shrink, shrivel or fade, nor shall it ever depreciate, diminish or decay; for it shall forever remain, ever sustained, as the only truly ordained, reigning supreme, enduring authentic Word of The LORD! And this Word, which is The Good News Gospel of Jesus Christ, is the very same Word that has been, is being, and shall continue to be, what was shared with you, through the preaching and proclamation of said Word! (1Peter 1:24, 25 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Everything on this earth is temporal, it has a predetermined shelf-life, some things longer than others. But, the one constant, and thing that always remains, never changes and stays the same; is The Authentic Holy Word of The LORD! For it shall never, in any wise, wither, diminish or fade away! It shall always remain forever and ever! It was given for the benefit of the whole of humankind, and is therefore, the Good News that all of humankind needs to see and hear, accept as truth and then receive and follow, living it out in their everyday lives, by growing and maturing, blossoming and blooming, producing a beautiful fragrance that will draw others to The LORD and then leave a residue of legacy, a bowl of potpourri, for others to see and smell, to be encouraged and inspired and then have opportunity to personally experience. No one can really know the longevity or duration of one’s life here on this earth, but, we can accept that we are mortals and therefore, should, with that in view, do all that we can, with the enabling of The LORD and the empowering of The Holy Spirit, to live a life that is pleasing to Papa God, one that produces a wonderful fragrance of worship that rises into the heavens and leaves a residue of legacy for others to follow, here on this earth. Blessings…
