03/15/17 One Thing: All Things New

He makes all things new

1 – We must recognize our great need for God

Romans 3:22-23 (NIV) This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

2 – He puts the broken things in our lives “back together” and does something NEW!

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT) This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun.

Isaiah 64:8 And yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand.

2 Corinthians 4:6-7

For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.

3 – We must share “our story”

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.
