“For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable,
through the living and enduring word of God.  For,

‘All men are like grass,

and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and flowers fall,

but the word of the Lord stands forever.’ (Isaiah 40:6-8)”

  1. I love the fact that His word is “living and enduring” This means that it is actively changing us to be fruitful and it is unchanging, standing the test of all time in our changing world.

    A complimentary passage to this passage is Mark 4:14 – 19
    14The farmer sows the word. 15Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. 16Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. 17But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 18Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; 19but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. 20Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown.”
