Ever carve a pumpkin for Halloween? It’s a mess…all that goo inside.
You must scoop it out, clean it up to get those eyes, nose, and smile on it. The pumpkin is transformed.
A carved pumpkin can remind us that God makes us a new creation when we accept Jesus, and we are redeemed of our sin. He cleans us and creates in us a new beginning.
Next time you carve a pumpkin… think about it.
Thank you, God, for your redeeming love through Jesus our Savior. I believe:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”John 3:16 (NIV)
