New Mind, New Body, New Attitude

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” ~ Revelation 21:5

St. Francis of Assisi said, "preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words."  Actions speak so much louder than words.  A life well lived can inspire others to new heights.  Jesus didn't use too many words to make everything new.  Instead, he focused on being a living example for all of us.  St. John tells us at the end of his Gospel in 21:25:

"Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written."

What else did Jesus do during his three year ministry that didn't make it into the Bible?  If his actions were as vast as St. John describes, perhaps they were not limited to his time on earth with His first followers?  Since Jesus is the Living Word and He has no limits, I believe He continues to make all things new at this present moment.  The good that He does for each of us is so abundant that it cannot be contained in a single book.  His works have no boundaries.

Are you ready to receive a new mind, body and attitude from Him?  I will allow my own transformation in every area of my life to speak as a testimony to what Jesus can do if you believe in Him and ask Him to come into your heart.  Jesus is everything you need.  The good that He can do for you is so abundant that it would not fit into a book if one were to be published about your life.  Are you ready for a new mind, body and attitude?  Start with the Book of Genesis, chapter one, verse one, "In the beginning God created heaven and earth."  Keep reading.  The Old Testament is all about the promise of a Savior, God's own Son, sent for you, to be born human in a remote place to parents of low status.  Read the New Testament and discover why He was sent by His Father and why He gave up His own life.  It gives special meaning to Christmas.  He is your gift.  Are you ready to receive Him?  If you already have, are you sharing Him with others?
