green is about life and that can mean starting over

12 11 2010

If you’ve lived long enough to be reading this you may need a second chance. You just might find yourself today in a place of wanting a fresh start.

You want that GREEN feeling of pure life. No pollution. No scars. No hanging clouds.

Just new life bursting out in the sunlight.

Wow! That’s weird! Is that possible?

“You lived in this world without God and without hope. But now you have been united with Christ Jesus. Once you were far away from God, but now you have been brought near to him through the blood of Christ.

For Christ himself has brought peace to us.” Paul writes to the Ephesians 2:12-14

I don’t know who this is for today, but I just had to get this out there…to you!

You see this is real. It was for me, who I was, and it’s for who I am today. It’s for you. It’s for all of us!

“All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else.

But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)” Ephesians 2:3-5

Now read this:

“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:8-10

Everything that you’ve been through…it means something to you…it means something to Jesus, and He has a plan. It’s possible to be clean, to be green, to have meaning, to live life on purpose.

“He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.” Ephesians 1:7-8

Forgiveness, real grace with mercy, is possible! You can be clean! You can be green!

Wherever you came from, whoever you are, whatever you are going through today: I am praying for you. Please believe that Jesus is your hope! He can make you clean!

Please talk to God, grab a Bible, message me or grab a friend that knows Jesus…and take a step toward His LIFE!
