He is Risen!

When I was a little girl, getting a new Easter dress was a BIG deal! We had to have new shoes, new socks, and a matching hair bow. I remember learning that God made all things new and we wore new clothes to represent our new selves.

As I’ve matured, I realize that the outer clothes have little if anything to do with the newness offered by Christ. God is actively working to transform us from the inside out. Because of his resurrection, our old selves died, and we are brought to new life.

This year as you meditate on the goodness of the resurrection, take time to reflect on the changes Christ has wrought in your own life. I pray that we are all making progress – imperfect, yet progress.

To God be the glory!
