Have you ever noticed how fast thing can get old?
I mean what happens a year after you buy a brand new car? – That “new car smell” seems to get smothered in other smells that are not so new.
Solomon had come to the conclusion that after a while everything gets real old real fast.
This weekend I wanted to look into a teaching that DECLARES that SOLOMON WAS WRONG!
Here is a brief outline to the notes.
SOMETHING NEW UNDER THE SUN
PASTOR STEVE LUMMER
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. 10 Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? – ECCLESIASTES 1:9,10 (NIV)
SOLOMON WAS WRONG!
Ecclesiastes 1:12 I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
Again in 2:17 – So I hated life, because the work that is done under the sun was grievous to me. All of it is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
But God hates things to get old – He said in Isaiah 43:14 : 18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 Behold, I am doing a new thing!
WHAT YOU REMEMBER SHAPES WHO YOU ARE BECOMING!.
Luke 1:26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin ….37 the angel said to her, “WITH God nothing will be impossible.
Virgin Birth? WOW! that a little bit new.
IN A CULTURE WERE WE HAVE BASICALLY “BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT” – HERE’S A FEW NEW ONES FOR YA.
1. A SAVED TO SERVE LIFESTYLE.
2. A COMMITMENT TO LOYALTY
3. A SENSE OF FAMILY
The ? Nothing new under the son or nothing impossible under the son?
Some things get old real fast …. WITHOUT GOD!
Marriages, work, family, life, vision, relationships and even ministry can get real old without God’s refreshing spirit.
Is it going to be nothing NEW or something NEW?
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassion’s fail not 23 they are new every morning – Lamentations 3:22,23
