Today's Daily Bread
Fri. Nov 28, 2014: Revelation 20:1-4, 11-21:2; Luke 21:29-33
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. Many things that people treasure are temporal -- but not the words of eternal life. The universe had a beginning, and it will have an end, but Jesus’ words are immortal because they are truth and life. If we didn’t know that, there would be no reason to look beyond today. What would keep us from despairing that everything ends with our own demise? Yet in knowing that even death cannot diminish the power of his word, we can live in faith and trust that we’ll see the Lord when he comes again and share in his eternal glory. Lord, help us to acknowledge the sameness of your truth yesterday, today and forever, we pray.
