Come, gentle Spring!
Spring is coming! Its earliest harbingers have arrived to tell me so. And with it, as always, comes a heightened sense of awe and wonder, a sense of such that I acquired at a very early age. Thus I look not outside Creation nor separate from it, to find God. The words of Romans 1:20 in Scripture intimates that “the world is a place of revelation and the whole of life is sacramental.” So it is that Creation is enough to reveal God to humanity, but it is not enough for its salvation. For that we need Jesus, the Messiah; He is the only one who has the ability to offer us salvation. Thankfully, with a profession of faith that He is Lord and a penitent heart, it is ours for the asking.
“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I(Jesus) will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ~Matthew 11:28-30 ✝
