The New You


Ephesians‬ ‭4:23-24‬ ‭ERV‬‬
“You must be made new in your hearts and in your thinking. Be that new person who was made to be like God, truly good and pleasing to him.”

Colossians‬ ‭3:9-10‬ ‭ESV‬
“Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledgeafter the image of its creator.”

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!”

    • Mission

  • You can be a “New Christian” with Old Habits
  • You got a “New Life” but an Old Mind
  • You thought the denomination would save you but it was a band-aid, or band-age, used to cover up sin. But there was no healing in it. No power!!
  • Just cause you wear a long dress don’t mean you ain’t a hot mess!
  • Talking in tongues, but cussing out your kids!
  • Preaching in the pulpit, but won’t talk to your spouse at home.
  • Jesus wants to upgrade you, transform your life, make you new, so you can be whole!!

Titus‬ ‭3:4-5‬ ‭GW‬‬
“However, when God our Savior made his kindness and love for humanity appear, he saved us, but not because of anything we had done to gain his approval. Instead, because of his mercy he saved us through the washing in which the Holy Spirit gives us new birth and renewal.”

Romans‬ ‭12:1-2‬ ‭GW
“Brothers and sisters, in view of all we have just shared about God’s compassion, I encourage you to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, dedicated to God and pleasing to him. This kind of worship is appropriate for you. Don’t become like the people of this world. Instead, change the way you think. Then you will always be able to determine what God really wants—what is good, pleasing, and perfect.”
