New

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV

I stayed in one stormy night.  My activities for the evening had been cancelled, there was some flash flooding and high winds. The next morning the rain had washed everything.  Outside it all looked so clean.  Brand new!  The trees and grass looked refreshed.  All the colors seemed more vibrant. Everything looked strong and nourished.

It reminded me of what God’s word does for us. It does all of those things.  It makes us like new.  It refreshes and makes us strong.  It makes us more vibrant!  It is nourishment for us spiritually.

Father, thank you for the spiritual vitamins You give us in Your Word that make us good as new!

2 Corinthians 5:17-21, Matthew 9:17, Mark 2:21, Luke 22:20
