Spring time is always an amazing time. Everything is blooming and coming back to life after the long winter. Winters can be hard and depressing, so seeing all the colors and feeling the warm weather can lift your spirit a lot. It is one of my favorite times of the years. I just love to watch the flowers and trees as all the new buds are coming in. It feels the air with a wonderful scent and so much color. Like God has taken a paint brush and brushed the earth. Each stroke just as it should be, because let’s face it God’s paintings are always amazing.
Behold, I am making all things new. Revelation 21:5
Isn’t this what Jesus does for us? He makes us new. We come to life with more color and new everything. He reaches deep into our sin. We don’t look good at this stage or smell good either. Like when a gardener starts to plant new flowers. They get in there with the tools needed, getting their hands dirty with the dirt. Jesus gets his hands dirty as He reaches in and pulls us out.
He then takes care of us. He makes sure we have all we need in our new walk. He washes us white. Like rain coming down from Heaven onto the flowers to make them grow. Jesus does the same thing to us. How awesome is that?
