2 Samuel 23:4 -- On Sunrises

"And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain."
2 Samuel 23:4

I like the image of the sunrise here, and the idea of spring and renewal as the image of God.  I think we sometimes get into our minds that God is somehow old... that eternal life could possibly be boring or make God into a worn out old man.  But in truth God is about newness, renewal... and eternity is about eternal perfection with no sickness or death involved at all.  And it's also what we can strive to be.  New, clean, and unstained or affected by sin or past mistakes.  Reborn in God into a beginning, not an ending.
Today, let's never mistake God for worn out, or ourselves for used up.  Let's walk in newness of life and worship the God of light and morning and beginnings.
