Brother Provencio's Thoughts

Brother Provencio’s Thoughts

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Old things are passed away; behold all things are become new. These words come to mind as we begin the month of April. It’s definitely a time for some old things to be put behind us and to look forward to the new.

April signals the start of Spring when the last of the winter rains wash away what remains of the withered remains of last year’s residues. We also are hoping and praying that we’re seeing the last of this virus wash away as the vaccine becomes more available and herd immunity seems to have arrived. What a horrible season we’ve passed through in the last 12 months yet this too shall pass. Perhaps in our own lives we also have circumstances we’re ready to put behind us.

Spring also signals the start of new life and new growth. Whatever was in the past is passed and things new and fresh spring from the ground fed by the same water that washed away the old. Among us we see hope for healthily people and a healthy economy all readying to grow and prosper. So is there hope for new things in our own lives.

Most importantly, April brings us a reminder of the message behind our opening verse.

II Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away, behold all things are become new.”

If it were not for the death and resurrection of our Savior, none of us would have the opportunity for a new life in Him. We begin the month by celebrating the love and sacrifice of a God who allows all things to become new. Let us always remember His gift to us and share it with others.
