REJOICING IN THE ETERNAL GOSPEL: amidst the Uncertainty of a New Year (Topical Message * 2 Corinthians 5:16-21) 01-04-2015

1. We become a New Creation in Christ

    2 Corinthians 5:16ff

 

● we’re alive, justified, adopted, & heirs: not dead, guilty, rejected, & damned

 

● we are God’s new people: with a new power, perspective, & purpose

 

● so be reconciled to God: who makes us ambassadors for Christ

 

2. We Enter New Seasons in Life

   Ecclesiastes 3; Ruth 1; Heb 11:8

 

● as a normal part of everyday life

  

● as we obey God’s call on our lives

 

● so be faithful & walk by faith (Luke 1:5ff)

→ on a daily basis & for the long haul

→ in the little things & the big things

    

3. We are Waiting for Our New Home

   Hebrews 11:13ff; 2Cor 1; Hag 2

 

● amidst the dark night of the soul

 

● when the “glory days” are behind us

 

● so love God & rejoice in the Lord: as we await the coming-eternal glory (James 1:2ff; Romans 8:28ff)
