A New Thing

Attack of the Old

“A Battle of Natures”
2 Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
7 Sure signs the old is overcoming the new
You’re avoiding the house of God and the people of God
You make excuses to justify fleshly behavior
You’ve lost your joy
You’re not open to correction
The word of God no longer convicts you to the point of change
Worshiping God is not longer a sweet retreat for your soul
You’ve lost hope
When the new becomes old
