1 Peter 1:24-25 – “All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the word of the LORD endures forever.”
My beloved, as a flower blooms and we enjoy its beauty for a season, and then it fades away and dies; the same is with us as people. We look the best at a certain age, and then we start to fade and eventually we die.
But the grace, love, and teaching we pass on to others never dies. Our Lord came, lived, died, was resurrected and went to the Father. But, His teaching continues to live on forever. He gave the Word to the apostles. They passed it on to those that followed them. And now we have received it, and we are to pass it on to others.
Our bodies will fade and pass away, but our words will live on. So the most important thing is to become a willing vessel for Jesus so His teaching continues through us.
1 John 2:20 – See yourself anointed and pass on to others the little or much that you have been given. As a believer, you are the hope of the world.
