All Things New

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

I remember growing up in the 50’s when Easter was such a wonderful event. I was one out of a large growing family, and on Easter morning before attending church, we would all scramble to search eagerly throughout our house for our Easter basket. My basket was always purple, filled with all kinds of Easter chocolates, colored eggs, jelly beans and other surprises. But what I looked forward to the most was wearing my brand new Easter outfit.
Every year, my mother would shop to buy all of us an Easter outfit, Dressing up in our Sunday Best was every bit as exciting as finding that Easter basket. We were dressed from our heads to our toes. And every piece of clothing we wore that day was brand spanking new.
This reminds me of how God makes everything new when through faith we make His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

When we believe in His death for the forgiveness of sin and His resurrection for eternal life we become “born again in Christ Jesus”. He purchases us outfits that never wear out and exchanges our old nature for His Own. (Isaiah 64:6)

And when He comes to take  us home, we will be dressed in His Best!

“Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is.” 1 John 3:2

How to be Born Again in Christ Jesus

About Doula Faith

I am first and foremost a child of God, "born again" into the Kingdom of God through faith in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He has called me to be an "Encourager" of faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. I have learned through some painful trials of His unconditional love. The apple of my eye, is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Living Word.

    This is such a simple, and beautiful analogy, about our transformation in Christ upon receiving Him as our savior.
