Dying to Live

2 Corinthians 6:2
Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Ash Wednesday is a great time for a new beginning. We are surrounded by God’s blueprint for life…plants, creatures and the very seasons themselves. They are all in a continuous cycle of dying and rising. Our lives are made up of a series of little deaths to self…and then risings…when we’re made new through the experience of the struggle. Jesus showed us that even the final death…is not the end at all…but the ultimate new beginning. When will it be time for your new beginning…your step into becoming the unique expression of God’s love to the world? Now…of course. It’s the only time that is real. It’s the time and place where God is “present.” It’s the time to begin your healing and your road to wholeness (salvation). Rise from the ashes! The time is now. Are you ready to start anew? “A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit” (Psalm 51:12).
