One Of The Best Ways To Invest In Eternity – Mark 13:21-37

From my reading in Mark 13:21-37 in the One Year New Testament.

Eternal Words 

In the middle of Jesus’ discourse on the end times he includes this powerful statement.

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” Mark 13:31

This is one of the most powerful statements Jesus made about importance of his words. Jesus’ words will last forever! By saying this, he was basically saying  his words are on an equal level as the rest of the Bible.

” The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” Isaiah 40:8

When we read, hear, or study the God’s word we are investing in something eternal.

Three Things That Will Last Forever

In the campus ministry I was a part of at OU there was a popular phrase. 

There are three things that will last for eternity, God, His Word, and the souls of people.

What better way to spend your life than to invest in those things?

How can you make learning God’s Word more of a priority in your life? I encourage you to make a plan and do it with someone to help keep you on track.

Invest in eternity, learn your Bible!
