Re-creation

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Last Sunday we read from 2 Corinthians 5 about the New Creation (the great Re-creation I like to call it) that God started in Jesus.

“if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away, see, everything has become new!” (2 Cor 5:17)

This spoke the love of God to me over the weekend and it rings in my ears still. Not only have we been fashioned by the great artist and sustained by the source of all life, this God loves us enough to re-create our world.

You and me included.

Wherever we are at on our journeys, whatever perceived failures or successes we’ve accumulated over the years, you and I are not finished. God is not done with us or our world.

In fact, when I look at each of you, I see glimpses of the Re-creation. I see people who are deeply loved by their Creator, fussed over daily and attended by the Spirit. That’s a fact that simultaneously excites me and injects a little trepidation into my heart; what a privilege it is to live with people loved by an infinite God!

So may that God tend to you today.

And may the sunshine of each new day remind you of God’s love, which is fresh every morning (Lamentations 3:23). Then, when your day is finished, may you rest well knowing that God is awake.

And creating.
