The Withering World

1 Peter 1:24-25 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: (25) But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

As I get older, and I'm not complaining because I really would like to continue getting older, I realize how fragile this world and the things around me are.  It seems that nothing, and sadly no one, lasts as long as we would like them too.

I can look around and see the deterioration of things that sparkled and shined at one time and now some of the are cracked, tarnished, rusted or broken.  Nothing seems to last. Even the pleasure that we get from worldly things seems to fade with time.

Thoughts like these would be depressing if I wasn't assured by Jesus Christ of eternal life and better things to come.  The Word of the Lord Endureth forever.

May God bless you an fill you with thoughts of His eternal presence and His eternal love.

Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know.  Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus.  I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
