Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 

- II Corinthians 5:17-21

 

 

Springtime. It is that time of year that makes us think of new beginnings. We move from cool (and this year rainy) winter to warm days full of sunshine. Life isn't perfect but stopping to think about how blessed we are to celebrate a beautiful spring day sure does help us deal with our daily lives. In every season, there is a reason to rejoice and an opportunity to do good. The challenge for each of us every day is to find something to rejoice about and some good to do—and then do both.

 

Count your blessings, name them one by one.

Count your blessings, see what God has done.

 

Springtime brings us our biggest hope when we celebrate Easter. We remember Jesus' death on the cross on Good Friday, then we celebrate His victory over death on Easter. We not only serve a God who creates amazing beauty, but we serve a God who loves us so very much that he sent his son to die on a cross for us and defeat death by rising again. A beautiful spring day reflects the love the Father has for us. The troubles of the world will fade away, but the love of God and his victory will last forever.

Prayer for Today

Father, soften our hearts in places we've lost hope and help us persevere, trusting that signs of springtime and new blessings will appear. Amen.
