NEWNESS Print

Before you were... you were not!  Meaning that during your life there was a time when that life was not alive.

But now ...

You are!

By the very virtue of being in Christ!!

“In Christ,” brings being.

His presence brings a new newness that has never before been known, until it comes.  However, now that you  are ... it is not yet fully known what you ll become.

“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”  1 Corinthians 1:18

To us who are now being ... who are now alive ... Christ within, is a power of continual change.  As we become more, we see that there is so much more to become!  The final outcome is yet to be known, so we struggle to continue in this becoming.

This is part of the picture of the Lord s table ... recognizing that we are new ... and that this newness is continuous as we grow “In Christ.”
