As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
I noticed in the three following Words from God, The Lord's Prayer, Psalms 23, and The Apostles Creed, that each really does not conclude. They all three close with a phrase letting us know that this Word from God goes on forever. The Lord's prayer which is from Jesus, the Logos of God, goes on forever. Psalms 23, the written word of God, the Scriptures, goes on forever. The Apostles Creed, the spoken word of God given to us by the church, goes on forever.
May his word fall down like rain on our dry souls
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, which art in heaven,
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.
The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God, the father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.He descended to the dead.On the third day he rose again.He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.He will come again to judge the living and the dead.I believe in the Holy Spirit,the Holy Catholic Church,the communion of saints,the forgiveness of sins,the resurrection of the body,and the life everlasting. Amen.
