That Which Lasts Forever
I am excited that there is some restoration taking place in the old Daisy Town area of Elkmont, but am also saddened that so many of the historic structures no longer exist.
They were a reminder of days gone by. But, like so many things in our past, they exist no more except in photographs and memories. I encourage you to take more pictures and videos for that may be the ONLY documentation some will ever have of a loved one or a favorite location as generations come and go.
But while most everything we can touch and feel will one day vanish, there are some things that will indeed last forever, and they all have to do with God, His kingdom, His character, and our salvation.
"The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)
YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST
For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God. (1 Peter 1:23)
GOD'S FAITHFUL LOVE
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. (Psalm 136:1)
But the Lord’s plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken. (Psalm 33:11)
Don’t you realize God’s justice continues forever? (Psalm 52:1)
FAITH, HOPE & LOVE
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
The Lord will reign forever. (Psalm 146:10)
