I love how everything comes back to life in the spring. The trees and plants are blossoming and the birds are singing and it is a beautiful sight after a long winter! I love how the Lord makes everything new! When you believe in Jesus, you become a new creation too! The old you is gone and you are perfectly forgiven and redeemed! The new has come!
Hold fast to Jesus brothers and sisters! Our sins are forgiven through Him and we have peace with God forever (Romans 5:1-2)! We are saved by grace through faith in Him (Ephesians 2:8-9) and our salvation is secure through the blood He shed on the cross for us all (Romans 3:21-28, Ephesians 1:13-14). We may stumble and fall, but the Lord will never leave us nor forsake us (John 14:18, Hebrews 13:5, Matthew 28:20). He will pick us up and lead us forward in His righteousness and nothing can snatch us out of His hand (John 10:27-30)!
The sins of the past have no hold on you. You are not who you were before Jesus! When you accepted Jesus by faith, He washed your sins away and He remembers them no more! Every day from that day since and forever, you have been and will forever be brand new in Him! May we embrace the fullness of the new creations He has made in us and may His will be done forever!
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
Jesus in John 3:16-17
“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 us the message of reconciliation.”
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
If you don’t know Jesus, come to Him today and let Him make you brand new! He loves you and He can and will heal and save your soul! There is nothing like the power and refreshing of the Holy Spirit inside of you! The Lord will renew you day by day just as the Word says and you will be a new creation in Jesus forever!
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile–the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Have a blessed and encouraging weekend!
Grace and peace to you all!
“as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our
transgressions from us.”
“I have swept away your offenses like a
your sins like the morning mist.
Return to me,
for I have redeemed you.”
