A New Creation

Bible Reading: Psalm 127:1-5

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.

Would it be possible to have a section where the Gospel is explained for Deaf people who are not yet true Christians to view? Maybe it could be a translation of a good tract? In fact, as Christians, we can never study the Gospel message enough for as we grasp it more and more our love for God grows and compels us to share it with others. God bless your endeavours for Him KS
