A Fresh Start

A Fresh Start

An irate subscriber stormed into a newspaper office waving the current edition, asking to see who wrote the obituary column. He was referred to a cub reporter to whom he showed the column, including his obituary. You can see I am very much alive. I demand a retraction! Replied the reporter, I never retract a story. But Ill tell you what Ill do; Ill put you in the birth column and give you a fresh start! If only I could begin all over again. If only I could have a fresh start.
This has been our plea since Adam. Jesus is God come to earth in answer to this plea. Let a man go to a psychiatrist, but what can he become? An adjusted sinner. Let a man go to a physician, and what can he become? A healthy sinner. Let a man achieve wealth, and what does he become? An affluent sinner. But let him go in sincere repentance and faith to the foot of the cross, and what does he become? A new creature in Jesus Christ, forgiven, reconciled, with meaning and purpose in his life and on the way to heaven.

Coniaris, Anthony M.; Harakas, Stanley S. (1998-01-01). Philokalia: The Bible of Orthodox Spirituality
