1 Peter 1:24-25
“All flesh is like grass
and all its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers,
and the flower falls,
25 but the word of the Lord remains forever.”
And this word is the Gospel that was preached to you.
This is my memory verse for this week.
In dwelling more on it, I am drawn into the history of God's redemptive story.
The futility of flesh contrasted with the indestructible Gospel of God's revealed righteousness..
The Word remains forever.
The Gospel remains forever.
I also love that memorizing this Scripture is a great idea, because the apostle Peter memorized it as well.
6 A voice says, “Cry!”
And I said, “What shall I cry?”
All flesh is grass,
and all its beauty is like the flower of the field.
7 The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the Lord blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.
All men are going to die.
But Jesus lives forever.
If you humble yourself to be found fully in Him, you too will live forever.
27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, 28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
These words are the Gospel being preached to you.
