tree shedding bark



“Renewable’ seems to be the buzz word of the moment as the world looks to changing to renewable energy.

In its own way, the Bible speaks of renewable things too. It says we can renew ourselves and our way of thinking. Just as the tree in the image sheds its bark and has fresh new bark, so we can shed our old thoughts and motives and be enlivened by new, fresh thinking. And the ability and power to do this come from God.

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.  (Romans 12:2 NLT

If there are things in your life you would like to change to become a better person, then know that you can do it, with help from God and the Lord Jesus.
