DAY 51

I am not sure why, but a lot of the oaks hang onto their brown leaves. I find it odd.

Made me think of Christians, who have been made new, but hang onto their old ways, regrets, and sins.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

If we look through the eyes of the world, I am sure we must look like these oaks with their dead leaves still attached.

But in the Spirit, we who are alive in Christ are new - all sin and imperfection is wiped away. Clean before God and one another.

So why do we wait until heaven to recognize this? When you look in the mirror, see yourself as the perfect blood bought heir to the kingdom.

And see your Christian brothers and sisters in the same light. Yes, in the natural we appear as the silly oaks with their useless dead leaves still attached, but in the reality of God's kingdom, wow, we are the awesome sons and daughters of the Most High God.
