This is the eighth article in a twelve-part series that develops a theology of language by examining what the Bible says about this topic.
God’s language (words) will not pass away. 1 Peter 1:24 talks about the fact that grass and flowers do not last very long. The beginning of 1 Peter 1:25 compares grass and flowers with the word of the Lord by saying: “but the word of the Lord remains forever” (ESV). The things of this world will not last forever, but God’s Word will. I want to invest my life in something eternally significant. A life that is transformed by God’s Word yields results that will last for eternity.
