About All Things New Series
We like the familiar by thinking it's 'all there is.' God is the Creator, exploding with imagination and bursting with plans, unexpected and beyond our dreams. Are we ready? Will we receive the new?
Colossians 3:1 NASB
“…you have been raised with Christ to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead…”
This verse comes before Paul’s admonition in verse 10 of Chapter 3 to “clothe yourselves with the new spiritual self.” The realities of this new life are so fantastic as to be unbelievable, easily dismissed as theory.
But just to consider it is to absorb it. To absorb it is to believe it and to believe it is – at last – to SEE it.
