The grass withers and the flowers fall but the word of our God stands forever.
In the beginning was the Word, and Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
The Bible says that God’s Word will stand forever. The Word of God will never pass away. When we look at the opening verses in the gospel of John we get a clearer understanding of what it means to say that the Word of God will never pass away.
John says that Jesus is the living Word of God. Jesus is the Word that has been with God from the very beginning. So when we proclaim the Word of God we can only proclaim Jesus. There is no other Word to share. Jesus is the very essence of the wisdom and message of God. To proclaim any other Word than Jesus is to proclaim a Word that is foreign to the very nature of God.
So when we are called to go into the world and share God’s Word we are called to share the love and grace of Jesus.
