Job 14:18-19



18 And surely ['uwlam] the mountain [har] falling [naphal] cometh to nought [nabel], and the rock [tsuwr] is removed [`athaq] out of his place [maqowm].

19 The waters [mayim] wear [shachaq] the stones ['eben]: thou washest away [shataph] the things which grow [caphiyach] out of the dust [`aphar] of the earth ['erets]; and thou destroyest ['abad] the hope [tiqvah] of man ['enowsh]. KJV-Interlinear



18 'But the falling mountain crumbles away, And the rock moves from its place; 19 Water wears away stones, Its torrents wash away the dust of the earth; So Thou dost destroy man's hope. NASB



We pursue our spiritual life, which begins with our initial belief in Christ, for our spiritual life begins with our salvation, and then is enhanced by our continued pursuit of spiritual growth toward maturity, by means of our daily Bible study and application of what we learn to our daily life.


And when we do this, then we have confidence that God will one day call us home for a far better life in heaven and in eternity.


The alternative is in our study for today. Just as the mountains and rocks waste away due to the continued wear and tear of daily weather, so too, anyone who places their faith in this worldly life, will see their hope waste away as they grow old.


Little by little, the world wears out. The rains and the wind, the continued pounding of ocean waves, earthquakes and volcanoes and just the very nature of this planet have demonstrated that what were once great geological features, perhaps thousands of yeas ago, have deteriorated by erosion into the sands and dust that we have today.


Dust is the foundation of the human body in this world.


People place themselves in high esteem and honor, but they really are honoring nothing more than dust.


Magnificent cathedrals, bridges, towering skyscrapers, toys for kids and adults alike, our cars, our clothes, nearly everything we have in life, originated from the fundamental resources of the planet. Place them all in a fire, crush them all under a great weight, and they return to the elements from whence they came.


We can take the dust of the earth and manufacture phenomenal and beautiful things, from computers to huge buildings. And so it is with humanity. God has taken common dust and made man in all of his forms from shapely blue-eyed blondes, to plain Joe's and Jane's.


So, we can look around and see the future of dust, which is us, by watching the deterioration of rocks or mountains. They erode away never to return to their former state. A rock wears under the repetition of pounding rain and wind. Once great rocks over time, become sand and dust.


There is only one hope, and that comes from God, Christ, and doctrine.


There is only one truth, and that comes from God, Christ, and doctrine.


There is only one reality, and that comes from God, Christ, and doctrine.


There is only one future, and that comes from God, Christ, and doctrine.


Everything else is nothing more than useless worn out dust.


There are only two places where man can direct his hope. He can look to the common dust of the world, or he can look to God.


With every breath you take, with every beat of your heart, with every thought you think, you establish your pattern of life, which reflects your choice between those two - dust or God.


In eternity past, God bagged up your life. Now as time passes by, you are documenting the content of your own bag with your every thought, motivation, decision, and action in your life.


What exactly are you putting into your very own bag?
