That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. Romans 8:28 (MSG)
Every Detail – The New Thing Series – Part 4
Whenever you see the word “new” written in the scriptures, it doesn’t mean “new” as in never seen before, it means “made new;” to rebuild, restore, and renew. Fresh. Transformation.
Isaiah prophesied that out of deserts and wilderness God would bring roads and rivers.
One of the reasons I think we are addicted to consumption is that we love the idea of owning something brand new. How often do we think, “I’ll just buy a new one” instead of fixing, cleaning, or rebuilding an old one? A few months ago, my mum went to a garage sale and bought around $1000 dollars worth of Lego for $60. It included ten sets, with all the pieces and instructions intact. It was to good to leave behind. It took us both some thinking and convincing that we could use the second-hand Lego as gifts for my son. Shouldn’t we be giving him NEW Lego as a gift? We can’t give him something that's been used, can we?
