Faded Flowers

by Berni Dymet

Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God will stand for ever.

Can I be blunt and direct? I used to watch those Christians wandering into their churches on Sundays a few years back - and I thought to myself "What a bunch of losers". I mean they sing songs and pray and some guy preaches. So what?!  

Look around - that's not where it's at. Look at the things you can buy in the shops and the fast cars and big houses and all that stuff. That's where it's at.

If that kind of rings a chord with you - can I share this wakeup call with you today? It comes from the Bible…yeah, I know, just humour me. The prophet Isaiah writes this:

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of God will stand for ever.  

Sure - you can't see God - but all these things we can see today - one day, they'll be gone. I mean, we can't take them with us. Then what? When the grass has withered and the flowers have faded then what?

Well, I'll tell you then what - then the Word of God will stand forever. It's a sobering thought.
