4/20 New Birth

1Peter 1:3 …In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,…

No matter what our past was, whether religious or secular, we have come in to a new birth. We were just living trying to get the most out of life knowing the inevitable ending, failure and death. For us in faith in Christ and the resurrection of the dead we are born again.

Everything has become new. We live with purpose. We now know why we live. We live to know him and serve him now and be with him forever.

We no longer live in defeat and hopelessness but a sure hope in Jesus and the resurrection. We bring this message to all who are like we were.

This has great value. Start to see yourself as waiting for the great resurrection. Start to see yourself as a tool for Jesus to bring salvation to others. Meditate on this.

Pray for him to open your eyes that you are now his and in his service for others. Thank him for the new life and to open your eyes daily for the opportunities that the Holy Spirit will provide.
