Always Relevant

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever

Have you ever noticed how strange most people’s photos look in their high school yearbook? It seems as though we all collectively decided to have the weirdest hairstyle of all time. Hairstyles come and go, and other styles come and go. But the Word of God is always current and always relevant.

Psalm 19:7–9 tells us, “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether” (NKJV).

The Word of God is perfect. There are no flaws in it. Everything we need to know about God is found in the Bible.

I love what Lamentations 3:22–23 says: “The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning” (NLT).

Have you ever had a time when you read a familiar passage of Scripture, and suddenly that passage seemed to jump off the page because it was so relevant to your life at the time?

Sometimes we wonder why life is going so poorly. Why are we making so many bad decisions? We need to open the Word of God.

Doctors know that a healthy appetite indicates good health, while a loss of appetite may indicate there is something wrong. In the same way, healthy Christians are hungry Christians, and they are hungry for the Word of God (see1 Peter 2:2).

We can find everything we need to know about life in the Bible, and it never goes out of date. We can trust the Word of God.
