Our carnal, earthly selves usually hate changes in our calendar, our environment, our list of responsibilities.
But, new things bring change. Yahweh’s mercy is new every day. I think that means that we don’t always recognize His mercy. It’s not just a re-wound toy that will run again for another day. It’s new.
The Roman church popularized a style of easter pageant called, “The Seven Last Words of Christ,” which was based on the last things He is quoted as having said during the events leading to His death. One of my heroes, Ralph Neighbor, wrote a book (maybe in the 70’s) titled, “The Seven Last Words of The Church.” Those words were, “We’ve Never Done it That Way Before.”
When is the last time you did something for the first time?
