Luke - Everlasting word

Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

There is a great promise. Few things of this life will last forever. The word of God will last forever. We are to seek those things which are above, those things that are forever. The word of God we definitely must read and eat and have it be our guide. It is truth and within the word are the answers to this life and the way to the next life. Two other things are forever, human souls and love. Both of these may parish in hell if not of the truth. Jesus' words shall not pass away. The soul that trusts in Jesus shall be with him, in love forever.

Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

Do not get bogged down in cares of this life so that you lose sight of what is eternal. Do not let things crowd out your relationship to God.

Mat 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
Mat 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
Mat 13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
Mat 13:21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
Mat 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
Mat 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

Luke 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Watch, for the end is coming. Will you be with Christ Jesus? Or will you be caught in the end time events unprepared and without hope.Jesus is your hope and mine. Now is the time to trust him and to be close to him. He is our salvation and hope of eternal life.
