You have heard this phrase many times. It was probably derived from a new exercise plan, but I want to take it to the next level.
Any woman who has given birth can tell you, the pain is all worth it once they hold the baby in their arms. When the birthing process is complete. new life is received as the miracle and gift from God that it is. It brings much joy, and the mom can put the pain behind her.
I can relate this to the pain from my past that God saved me from. I went through a re-birth when Christ entered my heart and I surrendered to Him. I was able to put the pain from the self-inflicted wounds of my past behind me to receive the new life which brings pure joy in the rarest form because of Christ.
All the pain is behind me and I have everything to gain. God wants the same for all of us. His grace is enough.
Romans 3:10 says “No one is righteous- not even one.” Verse 12 continues: “No one does good, not a single one.” But His grace covers all of us. Allow His seed to take root in your heart and grow into the beautiful bloom that you are. Soak up the “Son” in all its radiance and celebrate this new life.
A mascaraed party masks the lies; but a celebration of life reveals the truth and uncovers the lies for ultimate joy and peace and true freedom is revealed.
This means that everyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17
