Summary: Quite often we like things just the way they are, but Christ comes in a change should take place, because we are now new creatures in Christ.

First Church of God in Harvey

Sunday Morning - January 25th, 2009

Let us pray


Today, this day, is the day which the Lord hath made we will rejoice and be

glad in it. Today should be a day of rejoicing, because the Lord has done

great things for us, and I truly believe we all should be glad. Has God done

anything for you lately? If God has not done anything for you then you can’t

rejoice, but if God has done something for you then you should be able to


People around us, even those who are not save knows how to rejoice. Last

Tuesday, January 20th, approximately 2 million people gathered in

Washington, despite the cold for one common purpose to rejoice of what

had happened before their very eyes. It did not matter if they were black, or

white, tall or short, red or yellow, rich or por, they were in Washington for

one common cause, and that was to rejoice.

Last Tuesday, our former president, George W. Bush, left the White House,

boarded a plane, and left for his new residence. On that same day, president

elect Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th president of the Umited

States. There is a new man in town, a new man in Washington, and he is

President Barack Obama. Four years ago, it seems just a few persons knew

the name Barack Obama, but now four years later his name is known all

over the world. God does things our little minds cannot understand. When

Esther found herself in king’s house, through the Divine working of God,

Mordecai said to Esther, For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this

time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews

from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed:

and who knowest whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time

as this? Esther in her reply said, Go gather together all the Jews, that are

present at Shu-shan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat, nor drink three

days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise, and so will

I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I persih, I

perish.. I call upon everyone to pray for our new president, because I

believe God has sent him in such a time as this. It is God who sets up

leaders. The Bible says in Romans 13 verse 1, Let every soul be subject

unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers

that be are ordained of God or the authorities that now exist have been

appointed by God or the existing authorities have been established by


There were quite a few thoughts going through my mind, as to what I should

speak on today. In our Wednesday might Bible Class it became clear to me

that what I had in mind is what God would desire for me to speak on. I will

be using a topic that might seem a liitle different, and I trust God will speak

to us in away that we all will understand. My topic for today is, There is a

new man in town. Here are a few questions to think about. Is there a

change since you believe? Since you accepted Christ as your personal

Savior, is there a noticeable change in your life? Can those around you see

a difference in your life and mine?

Please turn with me in your bibles from The King James Version to 2

Corinthians 5 verses 14 through 21, and let us all stand and read together.

Please tell someone, when Christ takes over, a change takes place.

We sre going to focus on verse 17 of our text.

When a new man comes to town, we expect changes to take place, and we

hope for the better. Our new president is expected to bring about change,

and it will no longer be business as usual. Our president has listed things

that will start to take place in our country, and all of us will be a part of this


In the Christian life, when you have given your life to Jesus Christ, changes

are supposed to take place. Therefore if any any man be in Christ, it does

not matter if you are old or young, it does not matter if you are rich or poor,

it does not matter if you have reached some hard times in life, if you are in

Christ, then you are a new creature.

A new creature in Christ is one who has accepted Christ as their personal

Savior. When one accepts Christ as personal Savior, it means that person
