I love seeing the buds coming on the trees this time of year, then the trees bursting forth with leaves seemingly overnight. As much as I love winter and appreciate snow , I am filled with joy as spring blooms all around us. I’m reminded of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection making all things new.
A friend emailed me today with a simple, yet profound, question. They merely asked , “why do I deserve the life that I have? I am a sinner.” My answer was just as simple…God loves you and wants to transform you, to make you all He meant you to be from the start. Making all things new is why Jesus came to do all that He did, so that our Father’s love could be fulfilled. What incredible joy there is in knowing this and watching nature remind us of the story all over again every spring.
