I am so thankful for this season of new life. My yard is certainly looking forward to the April showers! . Trees and flowers are beginning to bloom, the dead grass will turn green again, and yes, South Florida temperatures will begin to rise. We see a revival of sorts as we look around and see signs of life from trees, plants, and grass that just a few weeks ago seemed lifeless.

My prayer this spring is that we too would experience a time of spiritual revival. Maybe for some it will be a time of new beginnings, rededication, or renewal. Make sure that you are giving your best to the Lord, not your left overs. Trust the Lord to do much in your life.

I know personally I am asking God to do a deeper work in my life. We live in a world that desperately needs to hear of the life-changing message of the Gospel. And, they will only hear if we will make it our aim to fulfill our role as ambassadors of Christ.

Lord, may you give your children here at First Baptist that desire and energy to be an ambassador of your grace! As they leave these doors today may You use each one to the furtherance of the Gospel.
