THE LAND OF BEGINNING AGAIN

 THE LAND OF BEGINNING AGAIN

 

I wish that there were some wonderful place

Called the Land of Beginning again,

Where all our mistakes and all our heartaches,

And all of our poor selfish greed,

Could be dropped like a shabby old coat at the door,

And never be put on again.

 

I made a mess of the first twenty-five years of my life! Then in October of 1958, in our home in Downey, California, Jesus found me! What a life-changing experience! I gave my life to God, through Jesus Christ, and found the “Land of beginning again.”

 

I have found a place,

A wonderful place called the Land of Beginning again,

Where all my mistakes and all my heartaches,

And all of my poor selfish greed

Has been laid like a shabby old coat on my Lord,

And I need never bear them again.

 

–Written by Louisa Fletcher, with Pastor’s John’s modifications–

 

2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”

 

John 1:12: “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.”

 

Thanks to Calvary am not the man I used to be.

Thanks to Calvary things are different than before.

And as the tears ran down my face, I tried to tell them

Thanks to Calvary I don't live there anymore."

"Thanks to Calvary am not the man I used to be.

Thanks to Calvary things are different than before.

 

And as the tears ran down my face, I tried to tell them

Thanks to Calvary I don't live there anymore.

–Bill Gaither

 

Let’s dedicate 2019 to beginning again! If you have not accepted Christ, may this be the year that you get on the road to heaven. If you are just going through the motions of being a committed Christian, may this be the time that you recommit yourself with all your heart. Happy New Year 2019!
