A New Creature

Acts 4:11

...The stone that you builders rejected, has now become the Cornerstone.

Hind-sight is 20/20.  “IF” is in the middle of “LIFE.” If only we had done this, or said that, what may have been the outcome? We make mistakes, we make wrong choices. But this scripture inspires us to believe that God can still make it right. Just as Jesus was rejected, underestimated, battered and brutalized, yet rose to be the most influential individual of all time – with the power of God, we can surely pick ourselves up, brush off the disappointments, and choose a new path toward a better tomorrow.

The butterfly begins its life as an ugly, blind, worm-like creature confined to the ground and considered a pest. Yet the lowly caterpillar has the opportunity for transformation into one the most beautiful expressions of God's spectacular creation; migrating thousands of miles, no longer bound to the earth, awe-inspiring bits of stained glass in graceful movement. While miraculous, the caterpillar has but one chance for new life. Through our relationship with Christ, we can start each day anew, leaving behind the shackles of sin, ugliness of spirit, pain that cripples us to emerge a new creature – forgiven and transformed by grace, reborn to continually experience newness of life.

In the Old Testament, the “Mercy Seat” is described as the place where God would meet with man. For only there, could imperfect, unworthy human-kind connect with an omnipotent and holy God, without being destroyed by His power – where His mercy would protect them. God has always made a way for communion between man and Himself – but this was not personal enough. He went to extraordinary lengths to bring His mercy to everyone in all the world - anytime, anywhere. By giving Himself as atonement for our imperfections, covering us with His grace, He made it possible for us to commune with Him freely and without fear. To break bread with Him, the most human of acts, mundane but necessary to life; to share His cup and drink Him in as friends; from the Mercy Seat to the best seat in the house.

Whatever our circumstance, whatever our pain, God’s will for us can still win out when we take the “IF” out of “LIFE” and get an "IV" infusion of His Spirit so that we can fully “LIVE” by faith.
