Celebrate


Sick of the status quo
Looking for change
Tired of lies
Want gloom to turn to joy
Need a new direction
Tired of death
Wishing for joy
Desiring a switch
Striving for celebration
Seeking more from life
Looking for answers
Wanting something new
Need move from empty to full
Want a new life
Want hope
Need truth
I want a brand new start ...
Give praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In his great mercy he has given us a new birth and a hope that is alive. It is alive because Jesus Christ rose from the dead. He has given us new birth so that we might share in what belongs to him. It is a gift that can never be destroyed. It can never spoil or even fade away. It is kept in heaven for you. (1 Peter 1:3-4, NIRV)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Then I saw "a new heaven and a new earth," ... And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Look! God's dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!"... (Revelation 21:1-5)
Jesus is all about change. Jesus went from being dead to being alive. He was put in a grave buried dead and then came out of the tomb and was alive. Once dead but now alive. The greatest change ever, all for us! A reason to Celebrate!
