One Thing Will Remain

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. (Matthew 24:35) 
 
Time passes and life goes on, but there will come a day when the world as we know it will cease and pass away. Heaven and earth will be gone. In Noah’s day, even as he built the ark and told the people of what was to come, they continued on as usual. They ate, drank, married and did all the things in life just as they always had done. Then the rains came, and within 40 days every living thing was under water, except for Noah and his family. Noah’s family was safe in the ark. They listened to God’s words and were saved. 
 
The Bible is filled with prophecies concerning the last days. Many biblical scholars who study prophecy fully believe that we are in the last days and that at any moment our lives will be forever changed. Jesus could return at any moment. Are you ready? Or do you think that your life will just keep going? God did promise us that one thing would continue. He told us that His Word will never pass away. His Word through His Son, Jesus, will save us. All we have to do is believe in Him to live forever with Him. Our bodies will die but our eternal life will go on and on. We need to live for that day when we hear the Lord say, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord’ (Matthew 25:23). 
 
What an incredible devotion, as I read it I was reminded of the sermon preached in service yesterday. The time is indeed near and we must be ready! What a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see, and I look upon His face, The One who saved me by His grace; when He takes me by the hand, and leads me through the Promised Land, what a day, glorious day that will be. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh (Matthew 24:44). Find us ready Lord! Are you ready to stand before God today, tomorrow or any day after? 
 
Have a beautiful day in The Lord!
