In the United States, spring is just around the corner. After a long and cold winter, we look forward to sunshine and flowers. Pretty soon the buds will burst open on the bushes and trees. The fragrant aroma of fresh flowers will fill the air and add a splash of color to a landscape or a room. It is nice to enjoy the flowers–while you can. They are here today and gone tomorrow.
Pretty soon people will also put away the snow blowers and replace them with lawn mowers. The sparkly white snow will melt away and out will grow lush green grass. It looks so pretty in early spring in the parks and in front yards. By late summer it often withers in the sun and gets brown patches without a constant supply of water. The grass is wonderful for picnics and play, but with the changing seasons it will soon fade away.
What a blessing and comfort it is to know that that the Bible never changes! It will not disappear. The promises within will never be broken. Prophesies yet to come will be fulfilled. People may disappoint, but God will always be faithful and His love for us remains the same. Our salvation is secure and the hope of Eternity still lives on for mankind. Praise the Lord that the word of God will stand forever!
