God is only engaged in new life, and with the new you. He can only speak in terms of love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, mercy, grace and holiness. To explore this reality, we are talking about breaking the mold of the old and who it is that does the breaking.
In this episode, we will be going through the second section of the first chapter of the The Nature of Freedom and exploring:
+ The great DELIGHT God has in the mold of the old you being shattered on the cross...
+ How you can be FREE from striving in your relationship with Him…
+ What it means to ENTER a relational process of being MADE in His image…
+ What TRUE freedom is all about and how you can EXPERIENCE more of it….
+ How TRANSFORMATION comes when you learn the KINGDOM way of seeing, thinking, and speaking…
+ Romans 6:3-11 (Read from your own Bible)
+ Acts 4:13 - “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.”
+ Colossians 3:3 - “For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”
+ John 16:13-15 - “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.”
+ John 14:23 - “Loving Me empowers you to obey my word. And My Father will love you so deeply, that we will come to you and make you are dwelling place.”
*Please note this is the correct verse for this scripture even though the video says a difference reference.
+ Zephaniah 3:17 - “The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”
+ 2 Corinthians 5:17 - “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

As our experience of God grows, we go from feeling out of control to a sense of self-control because we love hearing His voice in our hearts, walking with Him and holding His hand.
If that experience is new to you, continue to listen to this episode and engage with the book. Let His words wash over your heart, because those are the most important words.
Enjoy your explorations and let us know what you discover in the comments and we’ll see you again next week!
