All Things New

1 In Cor 5:17-21, Paul gives us five things to meditate on.  First, that the old things have passed away and all things are becoming new.  Major Leo Porter said that they are becoming new everyday.  This relationship that we have with Jesus Christ is becoming new everyday.  The lessons of life are just starting.  Secondly, all this is from God who reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ.  Thirdly, we have been given the ministry of reconciliation.  He has given us the task of bringing this message of reconciliation to the world.  God was to reconciled Himself to all men.  Fourthly, we are Christ ambassadors.  God makes His appeal through us.  Lastly, God made Him who had no sin to become sin for us.  So that we might become the righteousness of God.  Your promises today are:  John 3:16, 1 John 4:7-8 and Rev 12:11.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  Man measures success on what they see.  God measures success on what people do not see.  You can be successful in all areas of life and still lose in the end.
