All our ways however commendable they maybe, are nothing compared to knowing Jesus Christ. He alone gives us the gift of becoming a new creation. Boasting of all that we have done or accomplished in life can never measure up to becoming a new creation in Christ. He is able to change us interiorly. In the intimacy of his presence we are energized. We experience a gaping emptiness that only his presence can fill. We were designed for close communication with our Creator. When we commune with him in the garden of our heart we are blessed. This is the Lord’s way of living in the world – through us. Together with Christ we can push back the darkness. ‘Whoever follows him will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ St. Augustine says “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you”. It captures something that resonates deep within us. Having all that the world could give yet we will be restless till Christ fills that vacuum.
Prayer: Abba Father, may I become a new creation in Christ who offers us eternal life. Amen.
