Behold, I Make All Things New

“And He that sat upon the throne said,

Behold, I make all things new.”

Rev 21:5 KJV

The following are the words of C. H. Spurgeon on January 1, 1885

“This is the first day of a new year, and therefore a solemnly joyous day.  Though there is no real difference between it and any other day, yet in our mind and thought it is a marked period, which we regard as one of the milestones set up on the highway of our life.  It is only in imagination that there is any close of one year and beginning of another; and yet it has most fitly all the force of a great fact.  When men “cross the line,” they find no visible mark: the sea bears no trace of an equatorial belt; and yet mariners know whereabouts they are, and they take notice thereof, so that a man can hardly cross the line for the first time without remembering it to the day of his death.  We are crossing the line now.  We have sailed into the year of grace 1885; therefore, let us keep a feast unto the Lord.  If Jesus has not made us new already, let the new year cause us to think about the great and needful change of conversion; and if our Lord has begun to make us new, and we have somewhat entered into the new world wherein dwelleth righteousness, let us be persuaded by the season to press forward into the center of his new creation, that we may feel to the full all the power of his grace.”

What else needs to be said, except:

May the Lord Bless You

and Your Loved Ones
