Spring in northwest Missouri is amazing. It’s as though God grabbed a rainbow and splashed it across the ground. Hues of green, pink, cream, purple, red and yellow bring me such delight. After the dreary brown and gray of winter, the newness of spring is thrilling.

God promises us that same newness when we accept Christ as our savior. Second Corinthians 5:17 tells us “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

Would you like to have new life? Turn away from your sin and to God, and ask Jesus to be your savior (Romans 10:9). “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires,” (2 Peter 1:3-4, NLT).
