Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.
—Matthew 24:35 (NLT)
Before anything existed, the Word breathed Truth. God was the Word, and God and the Word were the same. God breathed life into the void, and His life brought light to all He had created. His light shone before anything existed, and it still shines, dispelling the darkness today. It can never be dimmed or extinguished. God sends forth His Word, and it always produces fruit. It accomplishes all the He desires, and it prospers everywhere He sends it. His Word is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. Laying bare our innermost thoughts and desires, the Word convicts and promises life. It changes and molds the attitudes and hearts of men.
The love of God revealed in the Word is beyond any measure. It cannot be contained. Full of grace, brokenness knows healing—surrender experiences power—death discovers life. Nothing is impossible within the realm of God’s Truth. The Lord—the Word—the Truth—is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Heaven and earth may one day disappear, but the Word of God will never disappear. Just as it existed before all time, His Word shall always stand. His Truth shall continue through the ages to change the hearts of men—His grace imparting forgiveness and freedom.
The Word breaks the bread of life, and reveals the heart of a Savior, who counting His life as nothing, gave it away as the ultimate gift of His Love. Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. He chose to give birth to us by giving us his True Word. And we, out of all creation, became His prized possession. That is the miracle of His Truth—His Word—His heartbeat. Love lived, died, and rose again—for me and you.
