Don’t you love getting something NEW? New shoes, new car, new house, new hair-do…..whatever it may be, NEW is exciting, isn’t it? A new start filled with hope and thanksgiving. The old is okay, but when we can get a new something it can be quite thrilling. Especially if it is something we’ve never had before. A NEW car compared to a NEW mop may be just a little bit more exciting. Maybe not. I suppose it all depends on what you value. I think most of us would agree. “OUT with the old and IN with the NEW!”.
Do you think God would agree that NEW is better? Or rather, we could agree with God.
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true. Revelation 21:5
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3: 22-23
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. Revelation 21:1
Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved. Revelation 21:1
Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. Psalm 96:1
Jesus came to bring the NEW! The old way to live, the old way to be forgiven, the old way we are filled, the OLD simply will not due! Jesus came to bring LIFE! NEW LIFE to us, each of us!
May your heart and mine be made new by the power of the name of Jesus.
