“For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.” Matthew [5:18]
This time of year, when lakes freeze over, you can have lots of fun snowmobiling, ice skating, and fishing on the ice. But each year we hear scary news reports of people falling through the ice.
There is nothing more terrifying than walking out on a lake and hearing the sound of the ice cracking beneath your feet. Before I let my kids play on the ice, I check and double check to make sure that the ice is thick enough to hold them.
In life, sometimes we are guilty of not checking the foundation of where our faith is placed. It’s only when we hear the sound of ice cracking or we fall into the freezing water that we know there is a problem.
Jesus reminds us in verse 18, that the Word of God should be our firm foundation. God’s Word is permanent; it is secure and it doesn’t change. Therefore, we can trust in His words and His promises completely. He also reminds us that God’s Word is complete. Through the Word we have everything we need to live at peace with God and others. When we make God’s Word the foundation of our life, we have nothing to fear.
Father, thank you that your words are true and they can be trusted. Grant me the faith to trust in your words more, and allow your words to transform my life. Amen.
