Lent to Easter 2015 (5 of 7) / by David Flowers

Sermon Series: Lent to Easter 2015
Sermon Title: The God Who Creates New Hearts
Scripture Reading: Jeremiah 31:31-34; John 12:23-36; 2 Corinthians 5:16-17

What is God doing? What does he want to do? Whatever God is doing, it isn't "same old, same old." God wants to do a new thing! 

Our Lent to Easter 2015 series focuses our attention on our need to see how and where God is at work in our personal walk with him, and in the life of our church. Are we listening? Do we recognize the Holy Spirit at work?

Christ calls us to deny ourselves in order to receive new life. His gift to us is his covenant written on our hearts. God’s life and law are internalized and becomes a part of who we are, fusing his Spirit with our own. God makes a covenant we cannot break without cutting out a part of ourselves. Growing in our faith is a process of shedding the old and living in the new by accepting Jesus over and over again. God creates new hearts when we deny ourselves and surrender to the way of the Spirit.
