The Bible Is Still Alive

Heaven and earth will pass away. but my words will never pass away.  Matthew 24: 35 NIV

Humanity consists of mortals with feet of clay.

We all have our moments. Even Christians can contemplate raising their expectations for themselves while maintaining our focus. Yet we shall all pass away. We will only be fossils in one thousand or ten thousand years.

While I was on holidays at home, I started studying comparative religion. I found this interesting, and it challenged my insights into my understanding of faith. After one online lecture, I turned to Matthew’s gospel and read this verse: Heaven and earth will pass away. but my words will never pass away. As I reflected, I thought about how alive this text is. The Bible is more alive than ever. Jesus travels through time and space to guide us to harmony for humanity. Jesus lives on in us. His words are active, making the Bible still alive.

Time passes, and our loved ones pass away. They are called home to eternity. To us, they are still alive through treasured memories. Even if only a fragment of the body survives, all the Bible remains alive.

Our best is yet to be. Today is a new page. We can turn a page of our Bible, which is still alive for us.

How much time are you spending in God’s Word?
