While many people will tell you that the colors and weather of fall make autumn their favorite season of the year, most people will admit that they look forward to spring. Each year the temperatures begin to warm, the rains come, and the earth begins to turn green with new life. Flowers explode with vibrant colors and announce that winter is over and a new season of life has begun.
When a person accepts Christ as their Savior a new season of life begins. In fact a new life starts. The Bible tells us, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;..." (2 Corinthians 5:17). The new life that is available through Christ is available to anyone. Again, the Bible teaches, "For God so loved the world and that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16).
This Sunday is Easter Sunday and there is no better way to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior than worshiping with other believers. He is risen and a new life is ours through Christ.
