New Things

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

—2 Corinthians 5:17


As I walked along the bridge, I noticed that a palm tree had been cut down.

Looking more closely, I could see that there was new growth.

Out of the stump near the ground, new life was emerging!

Bright and green, defying a hopeless end, it was springing forth.

So it is with us when we accept Jesus as our Savior.

The old goes away.

The new comes, springing forth, growing ever brighter with each moment.
