The power and preservation of God’s word
January 14, 2013
The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.
In 1939 at the World’s Fair in New York, a time capsule was buried, which is to be opened 5,000 years from now. And, of course, in that time capsule they included many items of the culture and society of that day—memorabilia to give a slice of life if the world is still in existence in 5,000 years.
In that time capsule, they included one book: The Bible! And when one of the officials was asked, “Why did you put the Bible in that time capsule?” he answered, “The Holy Bible, of all books familiar to us today, will most likely survive through the ages. The Bible we placed in the capsule will be a link between the past, the present, and the future.”
I don’t know what the world will be like in 5,000 years. In fact, I’d venture to say that no one really knows what the world will be like in 100 years. But one thing is clear: God’s Word will endure.
The Word of God stands forever. People have tried to disprove it and destroy it, but it has endured. I can’t think of a better book on which to build a philosophy of life than a book that’s worked so well for so long. So live your life by God’s Word because it’s the only book that will endure forever!
WHILE OTHER PHILOSOPHIES AND PSYCHOLOGIES COME AND GO, GOD’S WORD ENDURES FOREVER. SO MAKE IT THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR LIFE!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
