An Easter meditation on the new life Christ brings us: Sit with these verses in prayer. How is God speaking to you through his Word? How do you respond?
“So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: The old things have passed away; behold, new things have come” (2 Cor 5:17).
“We were indeed buried with him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life” (Rom 6:4).
“Remember not the events of the past, the things of long ago consider not; see, I am doing something new! Now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” (Is 43:18-19)
“Jesus (said), ‘I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.
Do you believe this?’” (Jn 11:25-26). Do you believe this? How can you live as a “new creation” in Christ every day?
