Salvation is Forever
“Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail.” Isaiah 51:6 (NIV)
Let’s not live our lives pretending that this planet and all herein is going to continue as it has, forever. The great cities of the world, the achievements of man’s engineering abilities, scientific discovery, and even space exploration will end. However, your salvation is secure forever. The very righteous work of God in Christ Jesus is an eternal gift.
The current order of things will wear out and the wicked will inhabit this world no more. The earth will be made new and the city of God will make its home here, where salvation and righteousness will finally exist forever.
Let’s pray today that as we watch things age and disappear we will daily rejoice in our forever salvation.
