The Old Life Passes A New One Blossoms

VERSE OF THE DAY.1 Peter 1:24-25 (New Living Translation).Share Audio.As the Scriptures say, “People are like grass;

their beauty is like a flower in the field. The flower stands out in beauty The grass withers and dies the flower fades and passes But the word of the Lord remains forever.” And that word is the Good News that was preached to you. That you you were taught and learned you live by the Glory of God.1 Peter 1:24-25 Brevity Of Life.May 22, 2018.1 Peter 1:24-25- For “All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, 25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.”[a]This is the word that was preached to you.BREVITY=The word brief comes from the Latin brevis (short) that derives from the ancient Greek brahis (short). From the same root: briefing, briefly, brevity, briefcase, briefness. In modern Greek: a) brahis: short. b) brahitis: shortness, brevity shortness of time or duration.Life is not only short but it is also full of unexpected and uncertainties. God is truly our only guaranteed hope now and in eternity.Everyone of us must come to the reality that life is brief. Like a flower that blooms and then a short while later it withers.The older we get, the closer we are to our death date. Even if we lived to be over 100, what are those years compared to eternity? We are born, we grow up, we work, get an education, careers, etc., we retire and then die. This is life one earth.Preparation for life after earth starts NOW! Tomorrow is not guaranteed!Think about those roses and flowers you bought just last week for your loved ones on Mother’s Day. They last a few days, possibly a week and then they die. Life has the same expectancy.We live our lives here on earth for a few short years and then we die. What we have done with the time allotted to us between our birth and death date is what really matters. WAS GOD IN IT? Did you include Him?The Apostle James describes life as a vapor that appears for a little while and then it disappears. Think of a steam from a boiling pot that appears for a few seconds and then it disappears. This is what life here on earth is like.God, through the Prophet Isaiah speaks about the brevity of life in the same manner in which He spoke it through the Apostle Peter in this text.Let’s listen to God through the Prophet Isaiah 40:6-8 A voice says, “Cry out.”And I said, “What shall I cry?” “All people are like grass, and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field. 7 The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. 8 The grass withers and the flowers fall,but the word of our God endures forever.”.What are you doing with the short time that God has given you here on earth? How are you using your seconds, moments, hours, days and years here on earth?As the grass withers and is just for a little while, so is life.2 Peter 3:8 But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.The good news on today is the fact that regardless of the brevity of life, those who have put their trust and hope is God will live on forever with God in heaven.The most painful and grieved reality for humanity is the fact that human life is temporary and full of trouble, but God through Christ Jesus has provided an eternal home for us, where we could live forever. It is by grace through faith that we are saved and not of works should any man boast. (Eph. 2:8-9, NIV). Eternity with God the Father in heaven is a guaranteed home for God’s people when the temporary life on this side is over.People of God, in Christ Jesus you have a hope and a future.The Apostle Paul declares “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.”.Jesus Himself declares in John 14:3-When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.Reminder: it is the Word of God that endures forever. Everything else is temporary!What are we doing with God’s Word? Are we daily applying it to our lives? Are we sharing it with others? What are we doing with the Word of God? Even when life on this side is over, the Word of God will remain standing.The Word of God is described this way in Hebrews 4:12- For the word of God is alive, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intents of the heart.Ponder these words on today and keep them at the forefront of your mind from this day forward. “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.What you have read here on today is nothing new for this Word has been preached to you from the beginning.Brevity of life! Now that you know the truth about life, how will you change from the way you were living to the way you should be living now?The life we live now determines where we will live in eternity.Today is the day to “COME TO JESUS” for the saving of your soul.Life is indeed uncertain. None of us knows if we will be alive even tomorrow.Guess what? Everyday people die who thought they had many years more to live.Brevity! It is what life is here on earth. Let not your labor be in vain. Use wisely the time that God has given you to serve Him through your service to others and to glorify and magnify Him in the process of it all.If you have been taking life for granted and thinking that you will be here forever, I can only hope and pray that what you read here on today would have changed your mind, and caused.Brevity! Brief is our journey on earth. Here today and remembered tomorrow.Brevity! God’s description of man’s life on earth.God bless.Debra.Today’s Verse: 1 Peter 1:24-25.Sunday, October 28, 2018.All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.— 1 Peter 1:24-25.Thoughts on Today’s Verse…As the seasons change, the leaves fall, and the grass dies, we are reminded once again of how short our lives are.

The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the word of the Lord endures forever. – 1 Peter 1:24-25 [NKJV].What Does 1 Peter 1:25 Mean? ►.But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.1 Peter 1:25(KJV).Verse Thoughts.As the elderly apostle wrote this epistle to God’s elect people who had been chosen according to the foreknowledge of the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit, it must have gladdened Peter’s heart to know that these saints had purified themselves – which was being manifested to the world through their deep love for one another.Peter rejoiced in God’s great mercy, knowing that all who trust in Christ for the salvation of their soul through faith in Him, are shielded by the power of God until the coming of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ – Who is ready to be revealed at the last time.He understood that the saints, to whom he was writing, had been chosen before the creation of the world and were born-again of imperishable Seed – which comes through the enduring, unchanging, and immutable Word of God.However, Peter also knew that the heart of every man is at enmity with God and all humanity is born dead in their trespasses and sins. He understood that in God’s sight, “All men are like grass, and all their magnificence and glory fades like the flowers of the field,” as recorded in the book of Isaiah.He had, no doubt, studied the prophet’s writings and recognised that the brevity of man’s life can be compared with the fleeting passing of grasses in the field, for he quoted the gloomy truth: “All flesh is like grass, and all its glory fades away like the flower which shrivels up,” for, day by day, we witness this fact in our everyday lives as we watch the grass withering away and flowers fading before our eyes.If this quote from the Old Testament had ended at this point, we would indeed be of all men… most miserable. But Peter completes Isaiah’s statement with a beautiful and enduring truth: “But the Word of our God stands fast forever!” Indeed, Peter goes on to explain that the Word of God, which was spoken through holy men of old, is the same Word of truth through which the gospel is preached today.The Word of the Lord is pure, perfect, and cannot be broken. God’s Word stands fast forever and ever, and God has placed His Word above His holy name. And from start to finish, the Word of the Lord details the way of salvation for lost sinners and is the means by which the gospel has been preached to centuries of believers. Scripture continues to be the vehicle by which we too have heard the truth of the glorious gospel of grace.From Genesis to the Revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ, we are presented with God’s gracious, redemptive programme for fallen man, as recorded in the Bible – that Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture, that He was buried, and rose again according to the Word of Truth so that whosoever believes on Him would not perish and pass away – as the grass in the field, but would receive the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting. The Word of Life also contains all we need to live a life that glorifies His name – for we have been given all we need for life and godliness.The Word of God is altogether true and His eternal order cannot be broken – let us, therefore, praise God that we who have been saved by grace through faith in Him, are the elect of God. But let us never forget that there are many who are dead in their sins who need to hear the truth of the glorious gospel of God.May we be emboldened in these last days to go into all the world and preach the unchangeable Word of Hope to those that are perishing. Let us hold fast to the Word of the Lord which endures forever and ever – for this is the Word by which the gospel is preached unto us.Source: https://dailyverse. knowing-jesus. com/1-peter-1-25.What does 1 Peter 1:24 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑].This verse must be taken together with verse 25. Peter quotes from Isaiah 40:6–8 to back up his statement in verse 23 that we are born again through the undying Word of God. Human life, though intense and beautiful in many ways, comes and goes in a season. Even the most productive, most privileged, most adventurous of mortal lives begin to fade just as they get underway.This is understood and grieved by people of every culture, every generation and every belief system. Human life is achingly temporary. Peter writes this letter, in part, to remind His readers that God has provided (by grace and through faith in Christ) a true home and a secure future on the other side of this temporary life. In Him, we have hope of a future without end.However, the specific point he is making here is about the word of the Lord, and it concludes in verse 25.Context Summary.1 Peter 1:13–25 describes how Christians—those God has caused to be born again—should live now. We must mentally engage in setting all of our hope in God’s future grace for us. We must choose to act as those who are God’s own people, rejecting the evil desires that drove our actions before we knew better. Our choices matter. Our God placed a high value on our lives, paying for them with the blood of Christ. Since God has made us able, we must now strive to earnestly give love to each other.Chapter Context.Peter, the apostle of Jesus, writes a letter to Christians facing persecution to comfort them with the truth of who they are in Christ—children of God with every reason to rejoice in their salvation and future glory in eternity. Next, he urges them to live like the holy ones of God they already are by obeying God now, loving each other earnestly, and placing all of their hope in the endless life to come
