My mom reupholstered my grandpa’s old rocking chair. She took me to Jo-Ann’s to get the foam and brown fabric. I even got an electric knife to cut the foam to the right dimensions. The new covering transformed an old chair into a handsome rocker.
Did you know we have a covering? The Bible says those who are forgiven and whose sins are covered are blessed (Rom 4:7-8). So who gave us this covering?
The One who transformed us from our old selves into the new. Who cut away the shackles of our slavery to sin. The One who breathed new life into our crusty stale bodies. The One on whom we hope. Rest.
Do you know Him?
