Grace, Love and Peace to each and everyone of you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
We will be learning 7 things that God is willing to give in a fresh way in this year
1. New beginning
2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.
2. New Heart
Ezekiel 36:26 – I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
3. New thing
Isaiah 43:19 – See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
4. New self
Colossians 3:10 – And have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him—
5. Newness of the Spirit
Romans 7:6 – But now we have been released from the Law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter.
6. New Mercy
Lamentations 3:22-23 – Because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish, for His mercies never end.
23 They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!
7. New Covenant
Hebrews 9:15 – Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.
As a believer we need to know the God:
Who is with us (Rom 8:31)
Who is in us (2 Timothy 1:14)
Who goes before us (Deuteronomy 1:30)
Romans 8:31 – What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
2 Timothy 1:14 – By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.
Deuteronomy 1:30 – The Lord your God who goes before you will himself fight for you, just as he did for you in Egypt before your eyes,
“Wake up, wake up;
put on your strength, Zion!
Put on your beautiful garments,
Jerusalem, the Holy City!
For the uncircumcised and the unclean
will no longer enter you.
2 Stand up, shake the dust off yourself!
Take your seat, Jerusalem.
Remove the bonds from your neck,
captive Daughter Zion.”
Knowing our position we need to do what God tells us to do:
1. Wake Up
2. Put on your Strength
3. Put on your beautiful garments
4. Stand up
5. Shake the dust
6. Take your seat
7. Remove the bonds from your neck
