New Life

Today is Easter Sunday. It is the focus of the Christian Calendar. Although more seems to happen in the run up to Christmas, Easter is the show stopper. It is what changes everything.

1 Peter 1:3-4 says:
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.
We believe that Jesus conquered death, and because of this we are given the chance of new life. This is what Easter celebrates. It is a time of victory, joy and fresh starts.

New life is something that is very relevant in Mosaic at the moment. The Bemrose family have just had a new addition: baby Maisie. This gorgeous little girl is so full of hope and potential and new beginnings. She has yet to say her first word, make her first step, reach her first birthday. There is so much for life to offer her.

What is amazing is that we are offered this same newness of life through Jesus. We are offered potential, hope and fresh starts. Jesus came to give life and life to the full.

I pray that you get to experience this new life. A life to the full. I pray you receive this inheritance that does not perish, spoil or fade. I pray this for baby Maisie. I pray that she grows up to know Jesus as her friend, her Lord, her Saviour. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
