...Renewal...Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
...Regeneration...Titus 3:5 He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to His own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit.
...Restoration... 2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you
...Resurrection...Romans 6:5-6 For if we have been united with Him in a death like His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His. We know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin.
John 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me, though he die, yet shall he live..."
Lord, God, Creator of all, thank You for teaching us about resurrected life from death through all we witness in nature; barren winter landscapes coming to life in the vibrant colors of spring! My prayer for myself and everyone reading these words is a hunger for Your Word and a thirst for Your Presence; an overwhelming delight in You, the Creator, as we see Your beauty and grandeur in all of Creation, especially as spring arrives. Unveil our eyes, unstop our ears, renew our minds with the wonder of life resurrected from death, and may we desire to have some aspect of our heart resurrected, restored, renewed, and regenerated as You reveal our need for such! Out of our desire for cleansing and purification, a renewed heart, may we simply ask You for it and receive it. (Psalm 51) Be glorified in us, Your Creation, that we will properly reflect Your majesty to a world in need of resurrected life. In Your Holy, and Precious name, Jesus, Amen and Amen!!
