New Year...New Creation

This new year brings with it new creation, new excitement and much joy as we had the wonderful opportunity to sit together at the table over Sunday lunch on January 2nd, and watch the excitement unfold in the eyes of our 8 year old daughter as she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior.  We've tried to be very cautious and not "push" her to a decision before the Holy Spirit spoke to her heart.  As we discussed the day's events at church, including the Lord's Supper we had observed in morning worship, Daddy looked at her and began a brief conversation about what it means to be a Christian and how one becomes a Christian.  She looked at him with wide eyes and excitement as she realized that a simple prayer and an open heart was all God requested.  She was elated at the simplicity and excited to begin her new journey as a Christian.  She then called both Grandmas to share the good news of her decision, as mommy stood by listening with tears of joy.  

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"  2 Corinthians 5:17
