First, I apologize in advance to those of you who love winter. I know there’s one or two of you out there, but most of us are celebrating the fact that…
Spring is finally here! It doesn’t feel like it yet in the corner of the world where we live, but the calendar says that it has arrived.
I love this time of year, because I know that many beautiful days are ahead. When we get a nice day in late fall we think to ourselves, this could be the last one, but when we get a nice day in early spring we think, this is just the beginning!
I think that’s one of the reasons we love spring so much. It’s not just about the weather getting warmer. It’s about the new beginning that spring represents. The grass turns green and starts to grow again. The trees bud and the flowers bloom. The birds sing as the fields are planted. Spring is a picture that assures us we can have a fresh start, even after a season of life that has been cold and dark.
“For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land” (Song of Solomon 2:11-12).
Today’s Good News is that you can have a fresh start! No matter how cold and dark your life has become, you can start over with Jesus. You can have a new life. Confess your sin to Him, and accept Him as your Lord and Saviour. He will give you the new beginning you’ve been craving. Life will still have problems on this side of Heaven, but His sunshine will burst through the clouds, and you will bask in the warmth of His love.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
Now, go share the Good News…
