It’s finally spring, and although the flowers aren’t blooming quite yet, I’m getting excited for when they do! Spring is such a sweet reminder of the beautiful redemption we have in Jesus. Though flowers fade, His love remains. Because of His unfailing and steadfast love for us, He suffered and died on a cross for our sins. He conquered death and three days later he rose again. We have been set free from the bondage of our sins. We have been freed from guilt and shame to live a life full of passion and purpose for Him! “For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery” – Galations 5:1. Through Him we have been redeemed. So rejoice in every flower you see blooming- you are blooming too. Exalt the Lord in every storm that covers you, for through it you grow. We fade quickly- don’t waste your life that Christ purchased for you through His precious blood, in things that don’t matter. For you have been set free. You have been redeemed. “As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more” (Psalm 103:15-16).
