JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the season of spring.
Spring brings warmer temperatures, melting snow, blooming flowers, and a greener landscape. The Song of Solomon describes the spring season like this: “See! The winter is past. The rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.”
Have you noticed the birds chirping with songs of delight?
Spring is a season of new life and so much growth. These dimensions of spring become realities for the person who trusts in the Lord.
Second Corinthians 5:17 says, “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here.”
Spring reminds us of the new life found in Jesus Christ and the nourishing effect of His grace on our soul.
The season of spring is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
You and your friends could celebrate the first day of Spring with a hot air balloon ride from the US Hot Air Balloon Team and Lisa Landis of WJTL’s Get Up & Go Show! Lisa will broadcast live from the balloon!

There are two times during the year when it really hits me how fortunate I am to have an office with a view. One of them is in the winter when the snow is falling and the other is in the springtime, when the snow is pink.
