1 Peter 1:24-25 NASB
We are officially in fall. As I look out the window in my office I see the trees changing colors. The leaves are quickly falling off and dying. At our house we have perennials that are dying off as well (hopefully to come to life again in the spring!). The turning of the seasons reminds us that there is a cycle of life for everything under heaven. Created things are bound to get broken, die, or merely just change into something else.
This passage from Peter reminds us of the same thing that the change of seasons reminds us of - created things die, “grace withers and flowers fall off . . . “ As Christians we face death every day. Death that is much more profound than leaves falling off of trees or grace dying. But, as usual, the Scripture gives us the Good News. There is one thing that never dies - the Word of the Lord. God’s Word is always faithful and can always be counted on. The comfort of God’s love is always available in His Word.
I’m not sure what loss you are going through today - maybe just a changing of the seasons. No matter what , remember that God’s Word doesn’t perish - it endures forever.
