Spring is my favorite season. The temperature rises, birds begin singing, it’s light out for longer, everything comes alive, everything becomes new.
2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
In the same way that Spring comes, when Christ comes into us we become new. Spring brings life with it, everything turns green. Everything wakes up. Ephesians 2 tells us that we were dead, but Christ has made us alive.
Spring is just a season, but if we stop and think about it, our lives spiritually are just like that. Jesus comes and fills us and we come alive, we wake up spiritually. Life enters into us.
We have this life, not to just sit passively on the sidelines, but to engage in God’s plan. He hasn’t made us alive for no reason. Think about how out of place it would look if we saw a group of birds singing, and one bird sitting off to the side watching. If we saw a tree that had a limb without leaves on it, while the rest of the tree was bearing fruit, we would assume that this branch was dead.
Christ has made us alive in Him, so we should take that life and live it. The life that we have in Christ is what we were created for, just like trees were created to bear fruit, we’ve been created to live our life in Jesus to the fullest!
We’ve been made new, so let us take this new life up, and run with it.
Hebrews 12:1, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
