Brand New

In the Lego Movie, there is a scene in which a silly, Lego ghost descends from above, hanging from a visible thread and slowly spins around like a spent yo-yo.


This character, whose name is Vitruvius, looks pretty stupid and weak except for one thing: Morgan Freeman provided the voice for this character.  And Morgan Freeman could bring gravitas to a dish mop.  Imagine how cool it would be if you could go into a business meeting with your boss and present your case with Morgan Freeman’s voice…

Consider this: 

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

When someone surrenders to Jesus by faith, they receive something that makes them completely new.  It isn’t merely a voice-over from a distinguished actor.  It is the very life of the Creator of the universe.

    One of my great joys in the Christ Walk is watching what His Spirit does in/through you. And as you write these marvelous truths, I can “see” Him healing your heart——restoring you—-empowering you.

    Love the LEGO picture and analogy to having God’s Voice within us by faith.
    Makes a perfect children’s message or mini-sermon for all. Thanks, Tom.
