“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” - 1 Corinthians 1:18 NIV
“For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” - 1 Corinthians 1:25 NIV
Where my family and I live, it looks like Spring has finally sprung…
Cars are covered with pollen. Folks are sneezing and wheezing and rubbing their reddened eyes.
Yet, at the same time, there is a sense of renewal that only Spring can bring. Flowers are blooming, birds are singing and nesting, the sun seems to be shining brighter (and longer) and, at least at times, the sky is a cloudless blue and the breeze is sweetly blowing.
Days like today were few and far between in the Winter. But in the Spring, despite the pollen, in spite of the Spring Showers that blow in from time to time, there is this sense of renewal, new life, a new day.
Similar to a life with Jesus. Renewal, new life, a new day. Sins forgiven and blown away by the breeze, washed a way by the redeeming showers. The sun shining and spurring rejuvenation. A new dawn. A new day. Jesus.
Let’s be reminded that God’s evidence surrounds us. The Spring serving as finger prints of His creation… the multicolored flowers, blue sky and greening landscape evidence of His creativity… the sunshine a reminder of His life giving voice.
The spring life reminding us of the joy of The Resurrection. Jesus leaving the tomb - Victorious! Arising as the flowers once again emerge from the ground.
He’s Not Dead - He is Risen! He Is Risen indeed!
His Spirit alive in all who believe. His evidence surrounding us as we live and breathe.
Keep The Faith… Carpe Diem
