Jesus told his disciples a parable. “Consider the fig tree and all the other trees. When their buds burst open, you see for yourselves and know that summer is now near; in the same way, when you see these things happening, know that the Kingdom of God is near. Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”
“…but my words will not pass away.” The word of the Lord does not and cannot change. The world today is trying to tell us that the word of God is wrong, that we need to conform to their thoughts and ideas. Jesus tells us differently. Whose word do you believe?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I stand firm on your word and I give you thanks and praise for the words of hope, joy and love that you have given us, in Jesus’ holy name, I pray Amen!
Here God lives among his people.
