GENERATE 2017 THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold: the new has come. – 2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV)
Join us in Summer 2017 as together we explore how the Gospel transforms, revolutionizes, and fundamentally changes everything. We’re expectant. We’re full of hope. Because we know nothing can be the same when we encounter Jesus.
DAY 1 – How It Was
The World & Our Hearts Before The Change
Romans 3:23, Genesis 1, Psalm 14:1-7
Scripture says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, but what does that mean? What do we need to be saved from? On Day 1, we’ll unpack humanity’s sinful nature and God’s holiness on a macro level, and talk about how it relates to us personally, in a micro sense. When we understand where we came from, we have the proper lens through which to see exactly how and why we need to be transformed.
DAY 2 – How It Changed
The Revolutionary Power of the Gospel
Ephesians 1:7-10, Galatians 4:4-7
There’s always been a plan in motion, and it looks like this: you are loved, He has fought for you, and when Jesus comes into your life, you move from being a slave to the world and its emptiness to an heir with Him. You’ve been adopted into grace through Jesus’s death and resurrection: the old has gone and the new has come.
DAY 3 – How It Is
Walking in Newness of Life
Colossians 3:12-15, James 1:2-4, Ezekiel 36:26
How then shall we live? A transformed life in Christ means we aren’t bound by the old ways of the world. When Jesus takes our heart of stone and gives us back a heart of flesh, that new heart comes with
DAY 4 – How It Will Be
A Future Hope
Romans 8:28, 2 Corinthians 4:16-18, Revelation 22:1-5
When we look around at the world, it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed and/or depressed. It’s difficult to see any God, much less one that promises that He is making all things new. But we can trust His word, we can actively live as children of the promise, while hoping in a future where everything shall be made right, and we are fully redeemed.
