1 Peter 1:22-25 – “Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, 23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 24 because
“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
25 But the word of the LORD endures forever.”
Now, this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.” NKJV
I love the simplicity that Peter uses in his writing. Simple yet filled with incredible truth! Here he calls on us to come face to face with the temporal nature of man in the flesh and the eternal nature of God’s Word. So, when you make that comparison which do you trust? Do you trust the arm of flesh or the Word of God? That should be a no-brainer!
Our souls are purified through Truth, and Jesus said, “Thy Word is truth.” He calls on us and reminds us that our obedience is the result of our sincere love for God and His love for us. We are born again or Saved through the incorruptible sacrifice of Jesus and taught the principles of life by the incorruptible Word of the Lord, which abides when all else fades away.
So, for me, I will take what God has to say on the subject over what any man has to say. I will take God’s principles over man’s reason. I will take God’s Promise as described, declared, and detailed in His Holy Writ over any promise made by any man, no matter his power or position. I know that God’s Word is true. Therefore, I can fully trust it.
Therefore, as you go through this, know that you have God’s Infallible and Incorruptible Word to rely on. Make it a daily part of your life just as you do the natural fuel for the body we call food. It is Spiritual Food and vital to our Spiritual Health and Well Being.
May God be with you and bless you as you navigate through this day in your life. Blessings!
