God's Word Survives

In 1854 a scholar named Tichendorf visited a monastery in the Sinai desert. The monks brought him a basket of old manuscripts and instructed him to use them for kindling to start the fire in his room. Upon examination, he found them to be the oldest known manuscript of the N. T.  He arranged to purchase the MSS , later called the Sinaiticus  manuscript for posterity.
   
Thomas Carlyle wrote a book called "The French Revolution". He sent it to John Stuart Mill for review. Mill went out one day and his maid used the manuscript to light fires in the large house. Carlyle had to rewrite the whole book because that was his only copy.
   
As you can see, man's words are vulnerable but God's Word survives. The only thing you can depend on is what comes from the mouth of God. "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away " (Matt. 24:35)
   
That being the case, God's Word will not go away no matter how long we wait so we better respond to it. "He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word that I spoke will judge him in the last day." (John 12:48)
