Easter’s Fresh, New Earth and the Promise of Life

Seasons come and go.  We shiver in the cold and wait for the Spring.  The buds begin to appear in a fresh color of green, like the crisp stalks of celery green.   We are the earth and we have been given promises by its Creator. 

Set in the universe, we here on earth see this  fresh, new life stirring.  Earth  is our home.  The breezes blow and the old leaves  fall off the trees.  The birds fly north again and the young are born.  What is life and what are those promises?

Just this week, I grabbed my camera and went out to peek at a nest that was being built  in the folds of a bush.   Carefully I pulled the small branch back and there it was.   A nest  had been carefully woven and  two small eggs were  inside.    Just as quickly I heard the sound.   It was a mother Cardinal sitting close on the fence, chirping that I was too close to her miracle that would soon happen.   Just as suddenly a bright, red male flies up to watch.   This nest was theirs and they wanted to protect it.  They had no promises that the nest would be safe or would last forever. Just last year a snake had crawled into a nest under another bush in our yard and had eaten the eggs so full of hope, beauty and promise. 

The earth is ours. We too need to protect it.    With all that we have to enjoy…from the powerful volcano; the oceans brimming with life; the birds of the air; the animals on the land….and the green that comes to us in this season of Spring, we see that earth has a new life and a resurrection.

For the Christian, the earth is a reflection of that Divine Life that was raised from the dead. Jesus, our Saviour came  to give the promise of new life and the promise of an after-life.  He brings us a spiritual newness, just as Spring brings new life to the earth.    His promise is  that old things will pass away and all becomes new.

May you be blessed this Easter season by the goodness of God.  Raise your eyes and look around  at the fresh green leaf and the renewing of the earth.  It is waiting for you with life and promises that will bring you peace and a hope.
