God could have chosen any ol’ way to show demarcation of time . He didn’t have to make leaves of trees change colors, fall off, and grow new again. We wouldn’t have known what we were missing. But He knew what we’d be missing, so He created seasons because He gets a kick out of blessing us.
“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.” Isaiah 43: 25
He wipes our slate clean for His own sake. Our sin puts us out of sorts with God, and He doesn’t want to be out of sorts with us. So we ask forgiveness, and He forgives. Always and forever. Grace rules for His own sake. For our own sake.
He loves us enough to give unlimited do-overs, changing seasons, and infinitely more blessings. May this weekend make known to you the many ways He loves.
