“All men are like grass, and their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.  And this is the word that was preached to you.” (1 Pet.1:24-25 NIV)

Humans spring up with such promise, with many gifts and abilities, but time passes and all grow weak and pass on.  Their accomplishments may last for a time, but all fade into the past. Solomon says, “All is vanity.”  Sounds pretty discouraging.

But God has the last word in his purposes, and his word stands forever. Wow!  Something that will last.  This is the GOOD NEWS, the gospel, that is declared through the scriptures, and preached to us.  Jesus made a statement that is so wonderful. He said, “...the scripture cannot be broken.” (Jn.10:35 NIV)  Here is something that will last, that is secure, that will not fail.  God has declared and has promised eternal life through Jesus Christ, his Son, and it cannot be changed.  This is what is offered to you and me.

You may not believe it.  You may discard it.  You may challenge it.  You may neglect it.  However, you and I cannot change it!  Many have tried in various ways to discredit it. However, the scripture cannot be broken!  Many, over the centuries, have run to embrace it and, through their own testimonies, have found it true.

It is still being shared and preached today.  God is still calling men, women, young, old, rich and poor; calling them out around the world.  The gift and reality of God is offered freely through Jesus Christ.  Whosoever will, may come and partake freely.
 It is true. The scripture cannot be broken!
