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?
Ephesians 2:4-5a AMP
But God—so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us, Even when we were dead (slain) by [our own] shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive…in union with Christ…
The ‘old self’ was living in death. Everything in the ‘old man’ is death. Even his so-called ‘good’ is death. And whenever I rely on the old self, believe in the old self, I live dead—feeling dead, and giving out death.
Our New, Deathless Life
But God – in His boundless love – has given us a new life, a new identity, a new possession.
My new life is a living Life. A deathless, victorious, vital Life!
