4-Bible Lesson Overview
This week, we will delve into the theme of renewal and how it will impact different aspects of our lives and the world at Jesus’ Second Coming. First, we will explore how the renewal will affect nature itself in the New Creation, as described in Isaiah 11:6-9. We will compare the current state of creation to God’s original design when He called it “good.”
Next, we will examine the New Jerusalem described in Revelation 21:2-3 and how the renewal will impact God’s relationship with His people, the church. The New Jerusalem is a time when God will finally dwell among His people, likened to a bride and the temple. We will delve into these themes and how they relate to the renewal.
In Philippians 3:20-21, we will explore how the renewal will affect our own bodies, specifically looking at the new body Jesus received upon His resurrection and what that means for our own resurrected bodies in heaven. We will consider the similarities and differences between our current bodies and the new bodies we will receive, and the freedom from the effects of sin that they will provide.
Finally, we will delve into the renewal of our hearts, as discussed in Ezekiel 36:26. We will examine the current state of our hearts and how God intends to transform them, both in the future when Jesus returns and in the present as the renewal process begins.
