All Things New.... - Greg Davis

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Romans 12:2 (NKJV)

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)

Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
    and he will establish your plans.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.


WE BELIEVE in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. 

We believe in one holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Isaiah 40:30-31 (NIV)

30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.

This prayer is based on Revelation 21:1-6a including the response: 
You, 0 God, make all things new. 

       The home of God is among mortals. 
       We are glad God is here. 
       Let us give God thanks and praise. 
       We are thankful for our lives, and praise God for blessings toward us. 
       We are grateful to you, 0 God, 
         Creator of the new heaven and new earth, 
         and of gifts yet to come, more than we can even imagine. 
      You, 0 God, make all things new. 
      You dwell among us and call us to be your people. 
      You dry the tears from our eyes. 
      You take away the power of death. 
      You bring us through mourning and crying and pain to be with you. 
      You, 0 God, make all things new. 
      In a surprising gesture, you came in human form to dwell among us. 
      Through Jesus Christ, you turned the world upside down-
         healing our diseases, 
         teaching us new ways of thinking, 
         living with us into new ways of community, 
         overcoming sin and death to rise again in newness of life. 
      We remember his life, death and resurrection 
         with thanksgiving. 
      You, 0 God, make all things new. 
      Come now, with your Holy Spirit, and make us anew. 
      Release us from our old burdens of hate and sorrow. 
      Free us from our doubts and fears. 
      Transform us into your people, full of love and joy, 
         ready to do justice and dwell with you. 
      You, 0 God, make all things new. 
      By your Spirit, bless these elements 
         and use them in your transformation of us, 
         that Christ may indeed dwell in us 
         and we in You, Great God, Three-in-One. Amen.
