The Story of Easter - The Beginners Bible
Harold Ross started The New Yorker magazine years ago in small offices, with little equipment. From such humble beginnings, The New Yorker has become a famous and widely circulated magazine. Almost everything great had a small beginning. Our chapter is about a new beginning with God. So they wept while the younger men rejoiced.
1. Lamentations 3:22-24
This is a beautiful way of saying that God is ever ready to forgive, to restore, and to renew. - Each New Year brings with it all sorts of good intentions for changing this or that in our lives. We resolve to eat healthier, save more money, exercise, take up a new hobby, get rid of a bad habit… the list goes on and on.
God is in the business of making all things new. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all. Truth: Your old, sinful nature is dead.
