I have started a new reading plan on YouVersion today - For the Love of God. It will take me on a journey through the book whose words have been gifted to us by God himself. It continues to shape and transform my life, often on my part stumbling and stuttering but always encouraged by His bursting Grace.
Today I read of new beginnings or new birth.
The birth of the world - Genesis 1
The rebirth of a nation - Ezra 1
The birth of Jesus - Matthew 1
The birth of the Church - Acts 1
Out of NOTHING he created a universe.
Out of DEFEAT he grew a victorious nation
Out of the SILENCE he spoke his most beautiful word - JESUS
Out of WEAKNESS he empowered His church to take the world.
God's seems to like birthing things when least expected.
