The Land of Beginning Again January 20, 2016

“To start over, you have to know where you are. To get somewhere else, it’s necessary to know where you are standing.” Those are the words of former College President and author Dr. Charles Swindoll, in his best selling book, “Come Before Winter and Share My Hope.” Perhaps in this first month of 2016 you are assessing your life, and want to start over. Maybe you are re-thinking your present lifestyle, and preparation for the next life. If so, it’s necessary to know where you are on the inside. The Bible teaches us that all of us, apart from a proper relationship with God, are out of fellowship with our Maker, because “there is none righteous, no not one.” So we need to be spiritually re-born. Jesus made that clear when He said, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” When that happens, as Paul stated, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.”
