A New Creation

Bible Reading: Psalm 127:1-5
Author: Mr. W. David Lewis (Tennessee, USA)

My two guides and translators, Kaarel and Taavet, made my visit to Tallinn, Estonia comfortable and convenient.  One day our tour included a great open-air theatre where music festivals are held, a drive past the presidential residence, and a visit to the museum.  As we concluded our tour, Kaarel said, “We are near a house built in the early 1930s that my brother is restoring.  Why don’t we drive by and see how things are going?”

As we drove down the tree-lined avenue, I noticed the roof line of a very interesting house.  In fact it was the house we were to visit.  I was enthralled by its condition — so sturdy and well built.  I thought of the words of Jesus, “See, I am making all things new.”  The owner was stripping away all that was useless and beginning with new window treatments, a new heating system, and plans to create a totally new house.  I remarked how thrilling it will be to see the completed project.

Then I thought how Jesus Christ had transformed my own life.  I am not all I can be, but Christ is changing me into a new creation.  I will never be the same.

Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, help us to know that we are still under construction.  Give us patience and courage to embrace the new life you offer. Amen.
