ALL THINGS NEW
For us to be ALL IN we must recognize that all things were made new to us through Jesus.
• not old
• recently born, built or created
• being other than the former or old
• different than what has existed
This was promised long ago to us by God. He said things were going to be different by His own design.
Jeremiah 31:31-33 NKJV
We are not people who are to simply operate by the rules. Now it is much better; we are to rule through the heart of God beating through our hearts. Our operational system has changed. We are His people and we operate with a new and better covenant:
Hebrews 7:17-22 NKJV
Oh it’s better, so much better! Thank God for God’s plan! Thank God for MORE. Thank God for NEW. Jesus made all things new AND available to all of us.
2 Corinthians 5:17 AMP
We don’t have to:
• be like we used to be
• act like we used to act
• go where we used to go
• talk like we used to talk
• be burdened down like we used to be
• lie like we used to lie
• cheat like we used to cheat
• depend on what we used to depend on
• be sad anymore
• be depressed anymore
• be defeated anymore
We are alive IN HIM and the old is passed away. Anyone looking at our lives should say about us: “Look at that! They are totally different than they used to be.” Amen, we are brand new! We aren’t doing the same old, same old. We have gotten hold of what is new. Who we are is not who we used to be. What we can accomplish is way beyond what we used to imagine or even think. We have purpose because He loved us on purpose, and He purposely provided all that we would ever need to live a different life.
• be who He said we could be
• do what He said we could do
• accomplish what He said we could accomplish
We are beholding Him and we are being changed day by day as we see Him reflecting in us and through us. Glory to His name! We are free to be free! He is faithful to His promises, and we have the privilege of being ALL IN on whatever His plan is for us today and every day. I just made myself happy! YOOHOO! BE NEW!
