Have you ever noticed how most of what’s “new” gets “old” fast?

Vintage Records with Tape Reel and Cassette.

Back in the 80’s and early 90’s, when I grew up, I remember certain styles that have since gone very out of style.  High pony tails with thick fabric pony tail holders.  Long, big shirts with that “belt-buckle”-like contraption that you put on one end of your shirt to make a tail.  Yep.  Definitely out of style.

I’m so glad that we don’t go “out of style” with God.  After all, God could take a look at us, shake His head, and create far better creatures than we are.  He could get tired of us, leave us to our disasters, and walk away.  But He doesn’t.  He deeply cares about us.

One of the most startling attributes of God is that, after we ruined His world with our sin, when He could have started all over on a new world, He chose instead to buy us back.

By dying in our place.

You’re not old news to God.  Instead, it’s as though you are on the front page of His newspaper!

This is the message of the cross: God has not forgotten about us, and God has not given up on us.

God has made a way that every one of us can be saved in Him . . if we choose to believe just how much He cares, and if we receive His paid-in-full gift of new life for us.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV)
