The Old Testament book of Isaiah contains three verses where God speaks of “new things.” It would seem to be a worthwhile topic as we begin a New Year.

See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.” - Isaiah 42:9 (NIV)

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. - Isaiah 43:19 (NIV)

From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you. - Isaiah 48:6c (NIV)

God is all about “new things, right? This idea of “new” is pointing us to Jesus, the “new and living way.” Didn’t Jesus speak of the “new wineskins, which would hold the “new wine” of the Spirit? Christ also established a “new covenant” in His death and resurrection. Through His sacrifice, all are invited to participate in the “new life. And I think every believer is looking forward to a “new heaven and a new earth” one day. So, what about the “in between?”

 Questions: Do you believe God still does “new things?” Ok ... would you be open to God doing “new things” in your life next year? Would you like to see God do “new things” in your church in the coming months?

A New Year brings new opportunities – along with new challenges. Are we up to facing them? Let the Church answer with a resounding, “YES!”

~ Pastor John
