Behold, the new has come…

Like a blank sheet of paper
Perfected by His scraper
The new man knows not who he was
Before he has been freed for cause

It seems there never was a man
Who thought of sin and how he can
Escape from this life’s evil fates
And find on earth safe haven’s gates

That open up and help him run
From wickedness and all that’s done
By man who knows not what will be
As soon as God has set him free

Behold, His Kingdom’s Promised Land
Is reached by those who understand
That it has always been that close
As their own breath is to their nose

🙂


 Jesus answered them,

“Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (Jn 8:34-36 ESV)

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Cor 5:17 ESV)

    Oh Yes, dear Susanne.. Oh, the freedom that is ours after the long cold night of religious bondage we were born into. BUT!!! A slave does not remain in those slave houses forever and when the Son calls us out and sets us free… OH WHAT FREEDOM to follow the Spirit Wind and oh, the love He draws us to Himself with!!!

    “Therefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”
    (Hebrews 13:12-15 KJ2000)

    Great picture you took of that flower, BTW. Very fitting.

      Yes, my dear brother!
      Isn’t it wonderful to be set free from the old man and to enjoy pure love when our old self with its passions and desires has been crucified with Him (cf. Gal. 5:24)?

      Thanks for your compliment regarding the pic, Michael. Actually, I took that pic
      yesterday on one of my “prayer biking tours”. I stopped in a small village called
      “Banderbach” and took pics of the Easter decoration there. 😉
