1 Peter 1:24-25
For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass wither, and the flower thereof falls away:…
I. We have here A DIVINE GOSPEL; for what word can endure forever but that which is spoken by the eternal God?
II. We have here AS EVERLIVING GOSPEL, as full of vitality as when it first came from the lips of God, as strong to convince and convert, to regenerate and console, to sustain and sanctify, as ever it was in its first days of wonder working.
III. We have AN UNCHANGING GOSPEL, which is not today green grass and tomorrow dry hay, but always the abiding truth of the immutable Jehovah. Opinions alter, but truth certified by God can no more change than the God who uttered it.
IV. Here, then, we have A GOSPEL TO REJOICE IN, a Word of the Lord upon which we may lean all our weight. "Forever" includes life, death, judgment, and eternity.
(C. H. Spurgeon.)
