I love Springtime! It seems during Spring, new life pops up all around me! I see it everywhere! Green grass begins poking through the desolate brown ground, flowers bloom, trees regrow their leaves. I hear it everywhere! The birds begin chirping, bugs buzzing, frogs croaking. I love that there is more daylight. It means more time to enjoy playing outside in the warm sunshine! It is truly a glorious season that I am very thankful for! Spring also reminds me of new life through Christ. Just as life springs forth from a previously dead looking tree, Jesus gave me new life! I was lost, but now I am found! I am so thankful that Jesus makes me new. I love the verse in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that says, “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun.” This verse is so exciting! It reminds me that I am new – a new person, a new life!
New life in Christ is something that should stir a passion in each of us. I want my excitement for my new life In Christ to overflow out of me and into others. I want to share Jesus and the new life He offers. Do you know someone who needs new life in Christ? Maybe someone you know needs a church home. Invite them to join you at church this Sunday, March 29, for Friend Day. The following Sunday, April 5, we get to celebrate my absolute favorite day of Spring – EASTER! He is risen! These truly are exciting days! Hope to see you Sunday with some “spring” in your step!
