Ministry would be depressing (and impossible) if...

these things weren't true:

"The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever." 
- Isaiah 40:8 (1 Peter 1:24-15)

"so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;

    it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
    and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it."

- Isaiah 55:11

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." 
- 2 Timothy 3:16-17

"For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account." - Hebrews 4:12-13
