The word that I have spoken… shall judge him in the last day. (John 12:2)
Two of the great realities in our midst are surely the promised Presence of God and the testimony of His eternal Word!
By the “Word of God” I do not refer only to the book you hold in your hand—paper and letters, pages and ink—sewed together with silk thread. By the Word of God I do mean the expression of the mind of God: the mighty, world-filling breath of God!
Most of the things men and women talk about cannot be counted among the great realities of life. In October, people talk a great deal about the World Series as a great reality, but by December they have forgotten who pitched and who struck out.
People spend their entire lives in the pursuit of those things that can only perish and fade away. But when it is all over, they are still going to be faced with the reality of the eternal Word of God, the revelation of Truth which God has given us!
Think of the changes that would come if humans would suddenly stop and hear the Word of God!
