1 Kings 6:18, 29, 32, 35; 7:18-20 Revelation 21:22-22:4 Exodus 35:30-35 1 Peter 2:4-5 2 Corinthians 6:16 Ephesians 5:8-13
What about this sermon stuck our to you? Brett talked about the two Greek words for "new" in the Bible, Kainos and Neos. "Neos" means brand new and "Kainos" means made new again or renovated. Every time in scripture it speaks of the the new heaven or new earth, the word used is "Kainos". What does that tell you about God and his character?
What are some things that you love to talk about? Read 2 Corinthians 6:16 and Ephesians 5:8-13. If you are going to life more as a temple of God's presence in the world, what are some things in your life that should go away? What are good things that you should enjoy more of?
Who in your life are you encouraged by to pour your time and energy into good, life-giving things?
Where in the world are there places that could use a little more of heaven on earth? How can you engage those places to bring a little bit of Eden by doing something that you love to do?
Reflect on some of the good things that God has given you to enjoy or the things that you love. How can you grow those things you life this week to help replace some things that need to be removed?
Lord God, you are making all things new. Help us to be like a temple of your presence in the world until all of creation is made right. And help us to find your presence in the middle of every good thing, making the world holy by enjoying you, Lord Jesus Christ, King of Endless Glory! Amen.
