Signs of Spring

I love this season.
The weather is shifting ever so slightly, and the sun is making appearances more consistently (Amen to that!).
The days are getting longer, which allows for extended recreation, walking around the neighborhood, and sitting on the porch into the evening.
The flowers are budding and the cherry blossoms are in full bloom in the Salem Capital Mall.  Beautiful!
These are all signs of Spring; a season of new life, growth, joy and blessing.
These are the days of Resurrection. From death unto LIFE.
I love how the Apostle Paul (under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit) puts it in Colossians 2:13…
“When you were dead in your sins and in your flesh, God made you alive with Christ.”  
From the slumber of winter comes the sprouts of Spring. From spiritual death as a result of sin, comes new life in Jesus.
This is what we are celebrating during this season.  I invite you to join me and thousands of others at West Salem Foursquare during this upcoming season.
