Classic, always.

Trends ebb and flow like the waves of the sea.  Fads are cute at times.  But it is the classic that I am a fan of; things that endure the test of time.  These, if you see them one hundred years from now, are still in style and almost to the point of starting a trend of their own.  Because, as we all know, that which is truly a classic will never go out of style.

The classic is not only timeless, but it is beautiful in its reliability to stay what it is regardless of what trend or gimmicks others chase.  What is fashionable today may not be in style tomorrow, but that what is classic will always be a masterpiece even after the huff of the trend fades behind the scenes of the newest fad.

That is what I love about the Word of God – it is always classic.  It is always reliable, and it never changes regardless of what the world is currently chasing.  Be it the latest report, newest discovery or theory – God and His Word are unchanging is what James 1:17 tells us. The Apostle Peter then writes, “But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you” (1 Peter 1:25).

Let me tell you why this is so important.  There may be times when humanity and history try to rewrite His Word.  But, God’s standard, which is His Word, will always be pure and right.  The Bible tells us, “The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes” (Psalm 19:8).  Which means we have an unchanging foundation upon which to base our hope and belief.  We can completely trust in the wholeness and wholesomeness of the Word of God.

If there ever comes a time when you find yourself confused or dismayed by the latest, latest.  Remember God’s Word.  Purposely take the time to turn to it.  There, in those blessed pages, you will not only find that God’s Word is a treasure to behold that we are to desire more than the preciousness of gold (Psalm 19:10), but in its perfect beauty, you can find the wisdom needed to answer whatever you may face on any given day (Psalm 19:7).  In that Holy Book, you can also find counsel by which to guide your life (Psalm 119:24, 133; Proverbs 19:21), hope to encourage and inspire you to hang on in there and not to give up (Psalm 130:5), and so much more.

In our lifetime, we will see many things change like fads of the day do.  It is just wonderful to know that God, and His Word, will not change.  It will always be flawlessly beautiful and perfect.  Classic, always.

“Watch What You Eat!”

What we put into our body matters.  The foods we eat can either help or hinder our health.  Yesterday, I mentioned stopping at a fast food joint.  Sometimes we do this but it is not an everyday occurrence.  I value what goes in my body.  Is every food choice the best choice?  No, but I try to make it a point to have the majority of what I eat to be of nutritional value; to be something that will build me up and not tear me down.

Our spiritual lives work in the same manner.  We are what we eat, spiritually.  If all that we are ever digest is the negatives of this world then we are robbing our spirit of the vital nutrients that can increase our awareness and spiritual health.  The Bible says, “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God,” (Rom. 10:17).  What we assimilate in our being is what will be produced in our spirit and in our lives.

God’s word has everything in it we need.  A daily diet of letting Him speak to us through His word, through His preachers and teachers will enrich our spiritual lives and make us stronger in Him.  When adversity and the storms of life rise His word that has already been deeply instilled in us pops into action and carries us through to the other side.

We need God’s word everyday.  We need it to grow.  We need it to learn.  We need it to increase our faith.  We will never be the healthy Christian that we need to be if we leave the word of God out of our daily routines. God’s word will build you up and make you stronger in Him.   Many are diligent about their natural health but watch what you eat spiritually.  It can make the difference between spiritual health and spiritual sickness.
