When the 24th annual Augusta Armory Antiques Show was held in Augusta Maine earlier this year, it drew a strong turnout from people interested in searching for old treasures. The Show included 42 exhibitors. There is no doubt about it, nostalgia is very profitable, whether it is antique shows or garage and yard sales. Folks can’t seem to get enough, as they look into the past and try to re-live again some of those days when they were a lot younger. While we may not be able to re-live, it is possible to live again. The Bible tells us that we can have our present wiped out and have it replaced by something brand new. Jesus called it the new birth. And Paul the Apostle put it this way, ”If anyone is in Christ, he (or she) is a new creation, old things have passed away, all things have become new..” That’s what the Saviour meant when He said, “You must be born again.” The key to this new life, this living again, is being “in Christ.” That happens when we sincerely invite Him into our lives.
