The cry of the human heart is for a restart button. Is there anyone who doesn’t have regrets about something? Is there anyone who doesn’t wish they could wake up and live a day over again, doing it differently? Sometimes the regret runs so deep that we long for a new life.
Jesus said that no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again. He made this astonishing statement to Nicodemus, a teacher of the law. (See John 3) Nicodemus struggled with how this could be, and Jesus said, “Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.”
Jesus is The Restart Button. He is the force behind the desire for a restart. His is the power to produce a new life, a new beginning. He says He himself makes all things new. When we believe Him, really believe Him and begin a life of following Him, we restart, new every morning! Every morning we awake forgiven and empowered to love Him and love others.
This isn’t false advertising. The One who made the claim was resurrected and rules the universe. He lives to be my restart button. He lives to be yours. He waits for you to call out to Him. He delights to share His life, His New Life with you.
Lord Jesus, reveal your love and power to those who long for a restart. Give each of them your New Life.
