Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17(NIV)
This past weekend most of the United States set their clocks ahead for daylight savings time. This ritual is dreaded by many, but never the less, we have to do it. It is an opportunity to perhaps have a new outlook on life coinciding with having to change all your devices to the new time.
Spring is coming and with it a freshness and newness. A time to branch out and grow and similar to new blooming plants we can bloom for Jesus. Before spring arrives normally if we want our plants to be nice and lush we clip them back. They may look ugly initially but afterward with water and sunshine they look wonderful. It is nice to look forward to flowers, plants, and blooming trees.
Do you get excited about Jesus and doing things of the Lord or are you satisfied just going to church each Sunday? Jesus can give you that newness of life. All you need to do is ask Him into your life to be your savior. Then start a regular habit of growing up in Christ by getting into the word of God.
PRAYER: I thank you for spring and the opportunities it brings. I thank you for a new freshness and beauty. I want more of you in my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
