”Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new…” [2 Corinthians 5:17 The Message]
The power of creation is within – the power to ‘push the envelope’ – reach for the stars and accomplish more than you can ask or think! The term ‘new age’ began when God Himself became incarnate, born of a virgin, from nothing else but God’s own game plan; an original thought from the heart of God. To duplicate such an act within man’s heart would take the Cross-of Calvary. It was there that the creative power has been poured out for all men who would choose Christ! As His child, you have chosen life! You have left behind the old deadness of yesterday, sin has lost its sting and the grave is now a place of victory!
Whenever the Cross is lifted up the creator of the universe draws men who hunger, men who see and hear a different drum beat. Those who listen for new thoughts, new ideas, new ways of living life as receptors of creative power and reflectors of God’s Glory!
United with this Good and Glorious Messiah is to flow in the creative thought bank of new seasons, fresh starts, new beginnings – daily. What new idea have you heard today? What old dream has been ignited by the sun rising, the seasons changing, and the pulse of seeds pushing to the surface? There is neither dull nor gray, not in this Kingdom living. Dull or gray is only the birthing channel. Like the caterpillar becoming the butterfly, shedding yesterday’s skin and becoming today’s shape, color and size! ”Forget about what’s happened don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?” [Isaiah 43:18 TM]
Men have climbed the stars, plunged the oceans depths and walked on the moon. Every act began with a creative thought; keep going He makes all things new every morning and the joy is in the journey!
