Returning to God with patience, persistence and purpose of sharing God’s Truth.
So whoever is in Christ is a New Creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come. Second Corinthians 5:17
This son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found. Luke 15:24
Joshua 5:9, 10-12, Psalm 34, Second Corinthians 5:17-21 & Luke 15:1-3, 11-32
A week ago today I was preparing to awake in the Hills of North Carolina where just the day before I was running around in snow flurries yelling “thank you God for washing us clean” acting as only a Native Florida Boy could do praying I could make a Snow Angel summoning and showering God with praise holding my hands high and yes while opening my mouth up catching the surprisingly large snowflakes drifting towards the ground. (Whew, a 77 word sentence.) The most amazing thing about life is to be “Born Again” in Christ when the waters of Baptism wash your sins away and allow a fresh look on life as examples of living True to God begin to emerge in your thoughts, actions and deeds to know Christ’s love of body, mind and soul.
Paul reminds us to day we are a “New Creation” gifting us with His Grace to accomplish new and exciting acts of charity joined in returning to God with patience, persistence and purpose of sharing God’s Truth. You can see it in your friends and family warming your heart indulging in Truth by practice of His Word living His New Creation day-by-day energizing the dead body leaving old things behind enjoying new things in Christ. The wrong turns of a selfish child can one day turn into a found new creation in Christ.
Any father I would think feels the same way about any loss of their own child in their heart whether separated by life’s mistakes of selfishness or greedy desires acting excited as Christ’s Parable depicts. Love of child does not go away it resonates in your soul as a silent reality of God’s love. It is God’s love that is constant through hurt and pain success and failures birth and death. Being Born Again allows God to daily wash you anew in His Spirit seeking faith, admiring hope and living love. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we live Born Again in Your Spirit of Truth. Day 7 of a Novena for the completion of Carolina Emmaus #2. Praying for Kairos. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. LORD, grant us the courage of our convictions that our lives may faithfully reflect the Good News You bring. I pray for Juan Menendez and his family who my poem is in honor of today. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
