I love the song “Pass It On” by Kurt Kaiser. One of my favorite verses is the second verse:
What a wondrous time is spring,
When all the trees are budding
The birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming;
That's how it is with God's love,
Once you've experienced it.
You want to sing, it's fresh like spring,
You want to pass it on.
We can always count on the coming of spring in all its beauty, after a gloomy winter. I live in the country surrounded by almond and walnut orchards and several grape vineyards. When the trees blossom, they are so beautiful, the grape vines are becoming green and sprouting. When we see the trees budding, the flowers blooming and the glory of creation all around us, it is a perfect time to share with others that our God created this beautiful world for all of us to enjoy. Think about it, He created all of it in only 6 days, and rested on the 7th. (Genesis 1:1-2:3). What a powerful message.
In this Easter Season, we rejoice that our God not only created a beautiful world for us to enjoy, but he sent his one and only Son who was crucified, died, and rose again that we can become new each day. The scriptures tell us in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come,” reminding us that we are a new creation in Christ. I pray that God opens our eyes to new opportunities and gives us the words to say and the confidence to boldy share our good news.
As Christians we need to embrace the opportunity to witness, not shy away from it. Our LWML Mission Statement: As Lutheran Women in Mission, we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others.
The song ends with this verse:
I'll shout it from the mountain top
I want the world to know
The Lord of love has come to me
I want to pass it on.
Don’t you think we should be shouting to all the world how amazing our God is? Enjoy your spring, take notice of the beauty, and joyfully pass on the good news that we serve a Risen Saviour.
