Music for October 2
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.
Two things all men have in common: sin and transience. We are all sinners and we know nothing without limitations here on earth in our mortal bodies. The prophet above makes a simple and poetic statement to illustrate how fragile and short life on the earth is. He contrasts the withering grass and fading flower with the never-withering, never-fading word of God. It will stand forever. How kind of an infinite God to bless finite creatures with the ability to look into and understand His infinite word. And it is all made possible by the blood of Christ. Praise Jesus!
Our Great God
Jesus Paid It All
Grace and Peace,
