New Life

Two men who have come out of addictions and difficult backgrounds surrendered their lives to Christ tonight.  I"m thinking about the miracle of new life.  They were dead and now they are alive in Christ.  Something dramatically profound occurred within them in a moment of time. We have such a gracious, beautiful God! The reality of this transformation will only be understood over time as they learn to walk with God and be who they really are.  Their minds will be renewed as they grapple with the truth of God's word.

I'm amazed by new life.  What a joy and privilege it is to see God birth new life within people.  He gives us a new spirit and a new heart. Our hearts are clean and holy before Him. A totally new start.  The old is gone and the new has come.

Many people say the Christian life is hard.  But it is not hard.  It has challenges, certainly.  Even death perhaps. But it is a life filled with the joy and peace of the Lord, overflowing with His love. We enter into life in relationship to our Righteous and Holy God, as He works out His will in and through the hearts of His people.  Praise be to God!
