Scripture Verse Of The Week ‘1 Peter 1 verse 24’


1 Peter 1 verse 24: “All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like a flower of the grass, The grass withers, and the flower drops off”.

We are not on this earth for long, the body we live in will one day give up and our Spirit and Our souls will be taken to eternity. Whether that is an eternity with the God that created us, which is what we were born for, or an eternity where the Love God is missing, which is really to horrific to really contemplate

It is a sobering thought, but verse 25, gives us great hope.

“V25; “but the Word of The Lord endures forever”.

Mankind is like grass, grass withers, but what is of the Lord last forever. Some people might be offended by that, but it has always been said there are only two certainties in life, death and taxes

Therefore let us consider ourselves as grass. Be not proud or presumptuous, be not confident of a long continuance here. We must expect to wither and should prepare accordingly, and lay up none of our hopes and plans in the world.

The Good News is we were born for eternity. We were created in the image of God, as a three part being, Body, Soul, and Spirit. The Body is the tent, we live in, our Spirit and our Souls.

In John 14 1 to 4:

V1 “Your heart must not be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me {Jesus}”.

V2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places, if not, I would have told you, I am going to prepare a place for you”.

V3: “I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also”.

V4: “You know the way where I am going”.

We have an immortal soul, which was created to live in Fellowship and Reverence of Our Creator.

The only way to render this perishing creature incorruptible is to receive The Word of God, for that remains everlasting truth and if received will preserve us to everlasting life and abide with Him forever.

In this fragility of life, once we had no hope, because of sin {rebellion and wrong-doing against God}, but we now have been offered Hope. The Word of God and The Message it contains, is our Everlasting fountain of comfort.

Hebrews Hebrews 6 verse 19: “We have this hope — like a sure and firm anchor of the soul.”

Anchor our souls in the fact, no matter what lies before us, Our Lord and Our Friend is already gone before us to prepare a place for us.

God Bless.
