It seems as though winter has finally given way to spring. In North Carolina, that means piercing blue skies and writing from the back porch. There is nothing quite like spring, the flowers bud after a long, dead winter. The grass is greener after months of dying in the cold. Bare branches make room for new leaves.
Everything about spring cries out with new life, rejoicing in the magnificent work of our Creator.
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)
God’s creation speaks His name.
It is no coincidence that Easter falls within this season of renewal after the death of winter, just as Christ rose to life after His death on the cross. “For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now” (Romans 8:22). Jesus is the firstborn of all creation, and it is by Him and through Him that all things exist (1 Corinthians 8:6).
