For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. – 1 Peter 1:23
One of the attributes of God’s word is that it is imperishable, that is, it cannot be destroyed. People may criticize the Scripture. They may react violently to what is written in the Bible. But they can’t get rid of it. Even if people turn away from the ways of God, the seed of God’s truth in their heart can’t be uprooted. For those who have family or friends who have heard the Scripture but have walked away, take courage. The very nature of God’s word is embedded in their soul as a reminder (and an oasis) of His faithfulness.
