Spring is here, and with it comes all these wonderful things, like fresh vegetables, beautiful flowers and sun! I finally get to go outside and do all the things I haven’t been able to do during the winter being cooped up inside.
My family and I, we like to find new parks to explore, go on walks everyday and go see the tulips. Spring reminds me of this new life that we have when we become Christians. In winter, plants go dormant, and in the spring, they all come back up to life and they get a fresh chance. And like those plants, we get that when we accept Christ in our hearts; a fresh chance. We get to accept Christ every single day. It’s not a one time deal, and it’s not something that goes away when you’ve been a Christian for ten or twenty years; even a day.
No matter when you became a Christian, you are a new creation in Christ Jesus. Your old life is dead, this new life has begun, and you have a chance to start over, start fresh, with the promise of God.
I hope that as spring comes, and as things get crazy, you can hold onto this promise that you are a new creation in Christ. What a joy, what a peace, what a promise that we get to have and hold onto.
Have a great week, and I’ll see you on Sunday!
