“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old is gone, the new is here!”
2 Corinthians 5:17
This afternoon, Jim and I took a little ride through the back roads of our community. As we rode and enjoyed the scenery, we noticed that the Seasons are changing from Summer to Fall. The air is turning crisp. The trees are beginning to show signs that their leaves will be turning soon. Before too long, the leaves will fall. Fall will soon be fading out just as Summer did and Winter will set in. However, we anticipate the newness that next Spring and Summer will bring us.
As we go through life, we go through our own personal seasons. Some seasons are brighter than others. Yet, when we have Christ in our lives, no matter how rough a season, we have the affirmation that Christ is with us. We also know that there is a Season more beautiful than we can imagine promised to us. It is the season where we enter into our eternal home.
If you are reading this and have not given your life to Christ, why don’t you receive him this moment. Lay all the old life and all that burdens you at the feet of Jesus. Then, ask Christ to come into your life and make ALL things new. After all, as I read in my bible today, it clearly reminds me that Christ is the doorway to a beautiful season.
May we walk in the light of truth and embrace the newness of Christ.
Have a blessed Fall.
