As we step out of winter and into spring it never ceases to amaze me how the daffodils, crocuses and all the spring flowers suddenly come to life. They died off last year, remain dormant until this time of year comes round and then find the light of day again and give us such an array of colour after the long barren winter.
So it is with our lives in general. In the winter with the dark evenings we close our curtains and it’s still dark in the morning when we wake and have to get up for work. Then spring comes and we feel so much better when the evenings draw out and we go to work in the daylight, new life has emerged.
We as Christians thank God for the new life he gave us when we put our trust in Jesus.
In the Bible it says in John Chapter 10 verse 10 Jesus says that ‘I come that they might have life and have it to the full’. Everything we could possibly need is there for us in Christ Jesus.
He is the God of all comfort, in Matthew Chapter 5 verse 4 He says’ Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted.’
Hebrews Chapter 13 verse 5 says ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’
Psalm 46 verse 1 says ‘God is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble’.
So new life and all these things are offered to us in Christ Jesus if we choose to put our trust in him.
