Do you want a new sheet of paper?

Do you want a new sheet of paper?

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

One day, while doing a physics exam, I was writing down one calculation after another. When I realised it, I had written all over the paper, but hadn’t actually done anything yet.

I raised my hand and asked the teacher if he could give me a new sheet of paper so I could finish the test.

Even though the test was going to be over in a few minutes, the teacher went to get another sheet.
But before handing it to me, he asked, “Why do you want a new sheet of paper?”

I explained that I tried to do the math, but was still a little confused, so I started writing on the paper and when I realized it, I had written all over the paper, but hadn’t actually done anything yet.

He said, “Okay.”

Even though I only had a little bit of time left, I took the test and still received the highest score.

When we are born, God gives us this sheet of paper, which is our life.

And what many of us have done is just scribble on this sheet without actually getting anywhere.

There are only failed attempts, frustrations, disappointments and tremendous confusion, yet you haven’t gotten anywhere.

I ask you, “Isn’t it time for you to ask our Teacher, the LORD JESUS, for a new blank sheet of paper?”

Don’t be shy; you can do this right now. Look for your nearest Universal Church.

Ask the Lord Jesus to forgive all your sins. Surrender your entire life to God Almighty.

God bless you greatly!

    Yes Bishop God has given me a new sheet of paper on which to re-write a new beginning on the Re-create Event day, 24th May, (My birthday) also a new pen with which to to write. Needless to say i am making the most of it! The enemy tries to take the pen away from me, but this time, the Lord is in control and he has given me the power to re-write the story of my life. Under no circumstances will I allow him to erase what God is writing! Thanks for an excellent post as usual!

    This blog caught my eye I believe its because I want to start again and keep improving myself, I hate it when I realise that I do get frustrated or annoyed but that's because somehow I was scribbling on my sheet of paper. thank you for this blog Bishop.

    Everyone needs this new sheet of paper, to be given a chance to start over. I got my new sheet of paper and used it to my full advantage, no going back once your given a second chance. Your second chance could be the inspiration to someone else's life.
