Thoughts for the Week

A New Birthday

Just the other day, as my friend was telling me more about herself. She mentioned that she accepted Jesus when she was sixteen. She said it had been about five years ago.

She stopped the conversation and threw her hands in the air with a smile. “Hey! Guess what! I turned five yesterday!”

The light and excitement in her eyes inspired me.

I had forgotten a fundamental truth that our life in God truly begins when we accept Him. “For you have been born again…through the living and enduring word of God” (1 Peter 1:23 NIV).

I think we should start celebrating two birthdays in our lives. Our physical birthday, and the day we became part of God’s Heavenly family forever.

Because when you are a part of His Family, that’s when you truly live!
