Recipe For Renewal

Two hours, 14 ingredients, every pan in the kitchen, and lots of sweat. My recipe still wasn’t right. Finally, I asked my wife what I should do. “Throw it away and start over,” she said. My wife was exactly right. My first attempt was ruined and trying to mix the old with something new would’ve made a bigger mess. In some ways this is what God faced when He redeemed us.

There is only one hope for corrupted mankind: start over! This means death to the old man and a fresh, new start in Christ. The more we understand this, the easier it is to act like the new people He has made us. God is in the business of starting over. In Christ He offers new life, a new start, and new hope!
