Spring is officially here in my neck of the woods and I am down right bubbling over with excitement about it. The days are longer, the weather is beautiful and my mood is instantly lifted just by stepping outside.
I think it is no coincidence that Jesus Rose in the spring. This time of year God is making ALL things new. All creation from dormant plants, hibernating bears, butterflies, and bumblebees all come out of hiding and are infused with new life.
When Jesus died and was buried, it seemed hopeless. Now he gives hope to millions. He who was dead now brings us eternal life.
In every season God is in the business of making all things new.
He used a kid (David) to kill a Giant, a runaway fugitive with a speech impediment (Moses) to free his people from Egypt, a prostitute (Rahab) to carry the lineage of Christ, and a baby born king with parents that were just regular people to change the course of history.
I think sometimes we think our past is “too bad” or “too ugly” But then I remember…..Ummmm…he OVERCAME DEATH. There is nothing He cannot overcome.
The same God that transformed the biblical heroes also transformed me and so many others even today. It is this time of year more than any other I am reminded at how HUGE this is.
Father thank you for making ALL THINGS new. And having all creation remind us of this miracle every spring.
