Another Story Begins, Through Him.
“In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
The porter has a purpose of what to do with clay from the beginning to the end. He transforms the clay until become useful in the world. Therefore, God made and remade human in his image. This is why we have the word and the spirit. It is not just about us being able to make something out of nothing. That is why no man has ever decided when to be born and how to begin to live; it was chosen by God through men called parents.
However, many have questioned why they were born by such parents when they saw other parents and on the other hands. Some people also felt strongly dissatisfied with the environment they were born and grew up in. But, does it interest you that the beginning of life just described has nothing spectacular to do for your future if only it is allowed to be a past and you press forward and get a new beginning.
C.S. Lewis said, “God became a man to turn creatures into sons: not simply to produce better men of the old kind but to produce a new kind of man.” The beginning of things really matters with whatever the thing has to offer and has the potential of actualizing. Why does the beginning of life, in general, have no dramatic impact; this is simply because when we came into Christ, it was declared that the step taken ushered us into a real new beginning. And in that new beginning was the word, the word was with God, and the word was God. This is the message of hope for every man that has come into Christ.
“You are no saint,’ says the devil. Well, if I am not, I am a sinner, and Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. Sink or swim, I go to Him; other hope, I have none.” Charles Spurgeon. There is no other word that matters again from the past as long as we had come into Christ, for when we came into Christ, we are made a new creature, old things are pass away and behold all things, and I mean it in all sense, all former, old and past things in your life are gone away. They don’t have a foothold again, and they can never get it because the life you live now is hidden in Christ Jesus. Arm yourself with this mind as you go out today. Don’t be afraid of what lays ahead of you. God bless your goings and coming. Remember, “forget the former things; pay no attention to things of old.” Isaiah 43:18.
1. Thank you for delivering me from my past life.
2. In the name of Jesus, my past cannot get hold of me.
3. Pray: Lord, I receive strength to dwell in your word and not my past.
