“Freedom’s calling, chains are falling, hope is dawning bright and true. Day is breaking, night is quaking. God is making all things new. Jesus saves.”
Welcome to October! The weather is cooling, leaves will soon be falling and footballs are already flying high. Swim wear is now traded for text books and coats and we are starting to think of the coming holidays. Fall truly represents, in more ways than just the weather, a period of change. I am actually quite excited about it.
This is an extraordinary season for those specifically in the US. Our friends on the southern coast are still recovering from hurricanes. Our friends on Wall Street (and other streets) are experiencing quite a “ride.” In a few weeks, we’ll be electing a new President. And, on a brighter note, we need to pick a team to root for in the MBL playoffs. That is just inside the US.
How wonderful it is that we worship an unchanging God and have a Savior that is stronger than the struggles on this earth. The song “Jesus Saves,” written by Travis Cottrell and David Moffitt, is a reminder of the Good News to all men. There is freedom in Jesus who makes all things new!
I invite you to read the lyrics of this song and dwell on the saving power of Christ. Let it be a reassurance to your church this fall season and through all the change around us.
