Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away! (Luke 21:33).
Jesus told his disciples this comparison, “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. As soon as their buds sprout, you know that summer is already near. In the same way, as soon as you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly, I tell you, this generation will not pass away, until all this has happened; heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”
When everything falls down and fails to offer hope and security to our life, only the genuinely reliable remains. We will be abandoned by friends and even at times family members, the society will hate us and the wealth and positions we have may be taken away from us. In those times of abandonment and neglect, we realise our nothingness and we turn to the Source of all. We remember his words still echoing in our hearts: “Be not afraid.” Jesus is telling us” MY words will not pass away.” What assurance so great can we still expect when we know that God will remain faithful to his words.
What can I give Him; Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd; I would bring a lamb
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part–
Yet what can I give Him, Give my heart.
