1 Peter 1:25
But the word of the Lord endures forever. Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.
1 Peter 1:25
Diocletian was a Roman Emperor who hated the Word of God. He collected all the copies of the Word of God that could be found, burned them, and erected a monument. Then he proclaimed, “The name Christian is now extinguished.” Yet, Diocletian is gone, and we still have the Word of God.
The Bible is always being attacked. Almost every week, you’ll read something in some magazine or newspaper about why the Bible is wrong. There are cults who twist the Bible. There are those who water the Bible down. There are humanists who ignore the Bible. There are so-called Christians, many of them, who claim to love it but don’t study it. There’s enough dust on some Bibles to write words with your fingertip.
These hath God married and no man shall part, dust on the Bible and drought in the heart. But in spite of all of that, the Bible goes on endless, timeless, dateless, and measureless. “Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89). Don’t be afraid of the enemies of the Bible; they’ll not destroy the Bible. What are some ways you’ve seen the enduring power of the Bible?
