The Chaplains Corner

The Chaplains Corner

Guest blogger, Chaplain Paul, is one of the most effective chaplains in America today. He is an emergency responder to every situation.

Hey, this is the Chaplain again.

As you know there is a big emphasis today on recycling. We are encouraged, even coerced, to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Personally, I do not like being required to do these things - even if someone else thinks it's a good idea. But that's another Message. However, I do have to admit that God is the great recycler; we see it in all of nature. And most of all we see it in His invitation to each of us to be "re-born" (John 3:3).

This re-birth is offered as a free gift, but it is our choice. Unlike the man-made decrees, His invitation to be renewed is voluntary. We have to come of our own freewill and take His offer of salvation through the Lord, Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us,
"Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"
At our new birth God re-makes us and gives us all that we need to live a new life that honors Him. New eyes so we can see by faith. A new mind so we can have the mind of Christ. New strength so we won't grow tired. A new voice to praise Him, and new hands for service. And most of all - a new heart. A heart that has been cleansed by Christ.

Are you into recycling? Have you experienced the best recycling there is? Have you allowed God to refurbish your life?
