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.
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.
