All Things New

By Steve McRee

“. . . those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned . . . they have already passed from death into life.”—John 5:24 (NLT)

At Easter, I’m always humbled and amazed to think of how far God went to redeem us, save us, and heal us. All so we could leave our sinful brokenness behind and experience what it’s like to live His way . . . in freedom and joy.

While the impact is instant, often the change in our daily life is gradual. The more we learn to listen to Jesus’ message, love others, and listen to God’s voice, the more we are made new.

This Easter, I encourage you to look for new ways to listen to Jesus’ message. There is always something to learn from His example and some way our heart can be renewed and changed to be more like His.

From death to life — I can’t think of a greater change than that! Praise God for all that He has done for us. Happy Easter!
