Day 432 – Jesus, all things new

In adam all die, in Christ all are made alive.

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

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

Through His crucifixion, death and resurrection Jesus makes all things new. He will use every trial, hardship and suffering that we are willing to offer Him, to transform this world. Though it seems hard to believe that suffering and pain can bring about any good within our own lives, let alone within the world, it magnificently reflects the splendor of Christ who takes the rags and filth of our sufferings and turns them into pure gold.
