Springtime in Michigan--it really is here!
The other day, as snow was falling, I noticed a whole flock of Robins together. It almost looked as though they were huddling together against the cold!
But I'll say it again...Springtime in Michigan...it really is here!
I've noticed increasing numbers of flowers poking their way up through the hard earth, I've heard the birds singing early in the mornings...and I've started to feel the desire within to get out and till the ground.
This is a GREAT time of year, because it reminds us again that the Lord is constantly causing new growth to come, even when on the surface things look dead, hopeless, lifeless.
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is 'THE' most powerful evidence ever that God makes "All Things New"!
...and I, for one, am sure glad He does!
When Jesus rose and conquered the grave, He ignited HOPE for each of us.
He had shown that the most hopeless, the most depressing, the most lifeless circumstance--DEATH--had been conquered! He--Jesus of Nazareth, Son of God and Son of Man--had conquered it!
And now, He offers US that same power!
The very same power which conquered sin and death raised Jesus from the dead, is now at work...within US!
Romans 8:11 says: "The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you."
He IS making all things new--and He's starting with YOU and I!
Rejoice in that fact today, and celebrate it this Sunday.
The POWER of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is more than enough to give you New Life, and to enable you to live it out in VICTORY!
Let Him make you new today!
