New Year, New You
Live a Larger Story
Behold, I am Making All Things New.
“Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” -Isaiah 43:18 NLT
Into our wasted broken world, God is continually doing something new. Nourishing streams where once there was only barren sand. Dry and safe pathways where torrents once swept everything away. This new thing God is doing- Will you not be aware of it?
And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. -Ezekiel 36:26 NLT
Into our stony broken hearts, God places a tender openness that recognizes Him and responds to His work. The expansion of this new heart is the genesis of change, the origin and energy of our transformation. This new heart God has given you- Will you not be aware of it?
But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit. -Romans 7:6 NLT
Into the tyranny of our life lived captive to the law of sin and death, God sets us free and offers us a new way to live. His way is liberating and pure. In it we find a resonant rightness with the essential way we were designed. This new way of the Spirit- Will you not be aware of it?
“And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”
- Revelation 21:5 NASB
Will You Not Be Aware of It?
As a follower of Jesus, you have been made new, you are being made new, and you will be made new. This past, present and future process of renovation is intended to make us into “little Christs.” As we move into this ongoing newness, our very living begins to tell the larger love story of God. What story is your life telling?
Behold- he is making all things new. This year He is continuing the good work he started in you. He is making you new. New life, new you, new story to tell- Will you not be aware of it?
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.
The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
-2 Corinthians 5:17
