There is a New Kid in Town

This morning I was celebrating on how good it feels to work out, thirteen pounds lighter.  I was delighting in all the wonderful things which the Lord Jesus has performed in my life. A faithful, untiring and kind friend to me now for 31 years, He has never left or rejected me.

It is now that the new man in me, Christ Jesus, is being released in my life. Now I understand the immortal words of the Apostle Paul.

Php 3:8  Nay more, I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as refuse, that I may gain Christ,

Eph 1:17  that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,

Now I grasp a desire not to live out meager ways, but to discern the new man in me, Christ Jesus, do His thing and live out His life.  Now I am mesmerized by Him, to learn His ways, how He performs, His faith, and the motions of His anointing and power.  Paul tells us in Ephesians that we might know the hope, the riches and the greatness that live inside this new man.

I am riveted by His revelatory beauty which rolls into my life like infinite waves of glory and grace. I am engrossed by the laws which govern His comportment, so unlike to the laws of that archaic and ancient sinful man. His transcendental   nature which traverses every natural law makes every impossibility possible, and eliminates every limit from my life.

Paul tells us in Colossians….

Col 3:10 And have put on the new <3501> man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

The Strong Word # 3501 “Neos” is the word new. This “new” is demarcated as one who is young in age.  This talks about a kid, a youth, a teen ager!  The mighty Spirit of Christ Jesus, the new man, lives in me in pizzazz; He is enthusiastic, vivacious, passionate, lively and full of energy.  He can be dead serious, spanking harder than anybody else if we continue to ignore Him.  He is super fun and adventurous.  He is the happiest being in the whole universe, and at the same time, He is the One who can cast into hell.

When I become born again at the age of 25 I was younger in age. Yet, I had an archaic, ancient, decrepit, “cane walking” man living in me. I was on drugs and dropped out of university. I was a severe stutterer, full of demons and fears.  I was trapped in the claws of pornography and in the bondage of greed. I never thought I could have a home nor have a family.

Today at 56, though I have gray hair, I am living from this teenager, this kid, in me. He gets bigger, realer, and more powerful by the day. It almost sounds like the lyrics to a song By David Clayton Thomas and Blood Sweat and Tears. LOL!

As the great philosophers of old, The Eagles, once sang, “There is a New Kid in Town”. Indeed for every Christian who is lives out of Christ Jesus, they can boldly proclaim, “There is a New Kid in Town”.  From now on, “I am gonna live” from the New Kid in Town.

Mt 9:17 Neither do men put new <3501> wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new <3501> wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

Mr 2:22 And no man putteth new <3501> wine into old bottles: else the new <3501> wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new <3501> wine must be put into new bottles.

Lu 5:37 And no man putteth new <3501> wine into old bottles; else the new <3501> wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.

Lu 5:38 But new <3501> wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.

Lu 5:39 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new <3501>: for he saith, The old is better.

Lu 15:12 And the younger <3501> of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

Lu 15:13 And not many days after the younger <3501> son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

Lu 22:26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger <3501>; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

Joh 21:18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young <3501>, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

Ac 5:6 And the young men <3501> arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.

1Co 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, which ye may be a new <3501> lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

Col 3:10 And have put on the new <3501> man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

1Ti 5:1 Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men <3501> as brethren;

1Ti 5:2 The elder women as mothers; the younger <3501> as sisters, with all purity.
