“They will perish, but You remain.” Hebrews 1:11
Someone once said that there are two certainties: death and taxes. Well there are two certainties (at least): our mortality and Christ’s eternity.

This world will perish, we will perish, but Jesus Christ will remain! Either side of death Jesus is our one certainty, our one Rock, our one Hope!

So, how come we spend so much time worrying about the perishing? Not only does Jesus remain, but He remains the same. Nothing else remains the same; all things will fail eventually. But when we trust in Jesus now, we are trusting in the same Person we will meet with face to face when this world is rolled up like an old garment and disposed of. I like that hope!
