I have seen many changes in this old world since "I was but a lad", some good, some bad. Yet through it all the Word of God has remained relevant to my life. This stability is a great blessing to every Christian and is stated in this succinct phrase, "The Word endures forever" (I Peter 1:25 KJV, quoting Isaiah 40:8).
Before we look at the statement closer, I will quote the whole passage. "Since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; for 'All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains [endures] forever.' And this word is the good news that was preached to you" (I Peter 1:23-25 ESV).
The word "endures" is a familiar one in the New Testament (Greek meno), is used 120 times, and especially frequent in John's gospel and epistles. It means to remain, abide, continue, dwell, and implies that the Word is unmoved, and fixed, and permanent. The Word remains unaffected by what happens on the earth and remains effective to help those who believe face the challenges of change.
Twice in the passage we are reminded of the stability of the Word. In verse 23 we have "the... abiding word of God" and in the quote from Isaiah we have "the word... remains [endures] forever". Other translations use terms like "will last forever" (NLT) and "goes on and on forever" (Message). As Albert Barnes wrote: "Amidst all the revolutions on earth, the fading glories of natural objects, and the wasting strength of man, His truth remains unaffected. Its beauty never fades; its power is never enfeebled."
These verses are not isolated but are based on the solid revealed truth of the Bible. In Psalm 119:89, the Psalm that teaches us so much about the Bible, we read, "Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens" (ESV). So there is a clue why the events on earth do not affect God's Word -- it is "firmly fixed in the heavens". Jesus himself reminded us that "heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away" (Matthew 24:35).
I have given my life to the Word of God and it continues to teach me and guide me along life's changing pathway. I finish with a quote from a book my wife Vivien is reading at the moment. "Mental floss regularly with God's Word to avoid truth decay." Two amens to that one!
