I have come so that you will be made new. The old things have passed away – your faults and failures – and freedom has replaced the curse. You are a new creation, blessed with fullness and joy.


I love talking about the power of newness. Knowing Father God is all about newness should give you great hope for the future. 

But remember, newness requires struggle. The point is not that you have labor pains. The point is that a baby is coming. And the “baby” is the answer to so many of your problems. Amen. 

Newness is the great gift King Jesus offers. The numerical value of the name “Jesus” is 888 and eight is the number for “new beginnings.” If you’re worried about the number 666, why don’t you just get to know brother 888? 

A new beginning is freedom. He is a freedom fanatic. The definition of the word “freedom”:  the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved. Jesus hates slavery, especially slavery to sin and death. 

God is love. Love requires freedom will or it’s not love, right? So, love requires freedom and without love, freedom is useless. The Word even says freedom is actually the calling card of the presence of the Lord. 

“Now the Lord is that Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.” – 2 Corinthians 3:17

Freedom is the agenda of Heaven. Is it yours? Pursue newness in your relationships. Pursue freedom in your finances and from hurts, habits and hang-ups that hold you back. Embrace newness in every aspect of your life. Make Heaven’s agenda your agenda.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5:1
