King James Version
33 Heaven and earth shall pass away:
but my words shall not pass away.
According to JESUS, the only thing that will remain will be His words.
The prophet Isaiah echoed the very same statement:
Isaiah 40:8 (KJV)
8 The grass withereth,
the flower fadeth:
but the word of our God
shall stand for ever.
Why, then, do we focus on everything else, but His words?
Why do we continue to be distracted by things of the world, when all that matters is Jesus?
Colossians 3:1-2 (KJV)
3 If ye then be risen with Christ,
seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth
on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above,
not on things on the earth.
The Word must dwell in us.
Colossians 3:16-17 (KJV)
16 Let the word of Christ
dwell in you richly
in all wisdom;
teaching and admonishing one another
in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed,
do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
His words give us spirit, and life.
John 6:63 (KJV)
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth;
the flesh profiteth nothing:
the words that I speak unto you,
they are spirit,
and they are life.
His words protect us.

17 And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:
His words give light.

and all his works are done in truth.

and is profitable for doctrine,
for instruction in righteousness:
His words save our souls.

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness
and superfluity of naughtiness,
and receive with meekness the engrafted word,
which is able to save your souls.
His words feed us.
Deuteronomy 8:3 (KJV)
3 And he humbled thee,
and suffered thee to hunger,
and fed thee with manna,
which thou knewest not,
neither did thy fathers know;
that he might make thee know
that man doth not live by bread only,
but by every word that proceedeth
out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.
His words set us free.
John 8:31-32 (KJV)
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him,
If ye continue in my word,
then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.
His words uphold all things.
Hebrews 1:3 (KJV)
3 Who being the brightness of his glory,
and the express image of his person,
and upholding all things by the word of his power,
when he had by himself purged our sins,
sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
His words produce faith in us.
Romans 10:17 (KJV)
17 So then faith cometh by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God.
His words give us knowledge, and understanding.

6 For the Lord giveth wisdom:
out of his mouth cometh knowledge
His words give us hope.
Romans 15:4 (KJV)

were written for our learning,
that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures

as silver tried in a furnace of earth,
purified seven times.

saith the Lord;
and like a hammer
that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Let there be light:
and there was light.
Let us heed the Word of God, if we are to be with Him:

20 My son, attend to my words;
incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes;
keep them in the midst of thine heart.
