What are the two things that will last forever?
This is not a riddle.
This is not a rhetorical question.
This is not a joke.
The answer to this important question can be found in scripture.
“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8
“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” Matthew 25:46
The two things the Bible tells us that will last forever are the Word of God (The Bible) and people (everyone will live forever, either with God or apart from Him). Therefore, as followers of Jesus, we should spend our lives focused on His Word, knowing it and living it, and pointing others to Him!
Things change, circumstances change, life changes, but the Word of God does not change. What the Bible claims to be true today was true 2000 years ago and will continue be to true tomorrow, in a year, and in 2000 years. Amidst all the chaos and uncertainty of life, lean on God’s truth…..it won’t change.
People are going to go to one of two places, heaven or hell, and that decision will be made during his/her time here on earth. For this reason, it is important that we make sure others have received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Forever is a long time and we want forever to be in Heaven.
My prayer for you today is that you have a passion for the two things that last forever: God’s Word and people’s eternal destiny. Investing in these two things will reap an amazing reward!
