All Things Become New
By Cinda M Carter
When in the shadow of His wings…
Protected through Jesus our King.
Without even realizing He is there,
God shows His goodness to all mankind while we are here.
Jesus draws us near…
He uses our circumstances and even our fears.
The Lord knows we are a lost human race,
So, God sent Jesus to give us His grace.
When we realize that we are in need of a Savior…
To fill our hearts void with a love that is greater.
Greater than anyone can imagine or ask for,
No one could fill that void in our hearts but the Master.
When we accept Jesus as Lord in our own lives…
Our sins are cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ.
He brings us into His fold,
No longer to be under the grasp of the enemies hold.
We become babes in Jesus Christ…
Through His word, Jesus starts planting the seeds of life.
How could I have not seen this before says, the believer,
I was under Satans influence, the prince of darkness, that deceiver.
Now into God’s word I find myself being nurished…
No longer under the curse in life to perish.
It’s because of Jesus that I can bask in His love,
Sent by our Heavenly Father above.
No longer living in the flesh…
But by the Spirit of God instead of death.
The old life is dead,
No longer to raise its ugly head.
Through Jesus the old life is crucified with Christ…
By faith in my Lord and Savior there is a new life.
All things are possible with God, it is for us to choose.
When we choose Jesus, the old life is proclaimed dead and
“All Things Become New”.
‘Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death;
that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father,
even so we also should walk in newness of life…
For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death,
we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection.’
