Old Things Made New - A Lesson in Renewal

Once upon a time there was an old, sad, dirty, stained, shower. I'm sure it didn't start out life in this manner, but little by little it came to this sad condition.

Even though it was still functional, it was also leaking and damaging those things that surrounded it. It still looked "OK" on the outside, but open the door and you could see the scum and scars.

What was the poor shower to do?  It couldn't clean itself.  It couldn't make itself new. All it could do was become dirtier and more stained.

But, redemption was near and the shower submitted to drilling,cutting away, grafting and adhesion. After all this --------------restoration.




 




Isaiah 1:18: “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool." Amen and Amen
