2 Corinthians 5:11–18 ESV
11 Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But what we are is known to God, and I hope it is known also to your conscience. 12 We are not commending ourselves to you again but giving you cause to boast about us, so that you may be able to answer those who boast about outward appearance and not about what is in the heart. 13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. 16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;
2 cor. 5:11-18

“Out With The Old And In With The New”

Many times people will make a “New Year Resolution” to change from an old way to a new way and before the 1st week of the New Year has passed they have “flipped flop” back to their old way.
Even if we decide to get new furniture or even “ a new look” we must go down the road of “Out with the old and in with the new”.
One of the great promises about being a Christian is the promise that if anyone is in Christ “New” has come. We don’t just have another day but we have the potential to have a “newer day” full of “new things”
The text tells us “all things” become new” In Christ we can expect “new things” and “good things” as well. As all things work together for good.!
Romans 8:28 ESV
28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28
It’s time for the saints in Christ to be “optimistic” about the whats ahead of them and not “pessimistic”(same o, same o)
Optimism Craig Randall drives a garbage truck in Peabody, Massachusetts. In a garbage container one day, he noticed a Wendy's soft drink cup bearing a contest sticker. Having won a chicken sandwich the week before, Randall checked it, hoping for some french fries or a soft drink. Instead, he peeled a sticker worth $200,000 toward the construction of a new home, reported U.S. News & World Report (11/6/95). What we get out of life depends a lot on what we look for. Are we more likely to see each experience as trash or a potential treasure?

I. If You Are In Christ, You Have A “New Love” That Controls And Obligates Us ( v14-15)

2 Corinthians 5:14–15 ESV
14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.

A) Christ’s Love Demonstrated On Calvary Controls Us.(v14)

2 Corinthians 5:14 ESV
14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died;
2 cor.5:14

B) Christ ‘s Love Demonstrated On Calvary Obligates Us (v15)

2 Corinthians 5:15 ESV
15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
2 Cor.5:15

Lover of Pigs?

In the 1980s, people shelled out thousands of dollars to own a potbellied pig, an exotic house pet imported from Vietnam. Their breeders claimed these minipigs were quite smart and would grow to only 40 pounds. Well, they were half right. The pigs were smart. But they had a tendency to grow to about 150 pounds and become quite aggressive. What do people do with an unwanted potbellied pig? Fortunately, Dale Riffle came to the rescue. Someone had given Riffle one of these pigs, and he fell in love with it. The pig, Rufus, never learned to use its litter box and developed this craving for carpets and wallpaper and drywall. Yet Riffle sold his suburban home and moved with Rufus to a five-acre farm in West Virginia. He started taking in other unwanted pigs, and before long, the guy was living in hog heaven. There are currently 180 residents on his farm. According to an article in U.S. LNews & World Report, they snooze on beds of pine shavings. They wallow in mud puddles. They soak in plastic swimming pools and listen to piped-in classical music. And they never need fear that one day they'll become bacon or pork chops. There's actually a waiting list of unwanted pigs trying to get a hoof in the door at Riffle's farm. Dale Riffle told the reporter, "We're all put on earth for some reason, and I guess pigs are my lot in life." How could anybody in his right mind fall in love with pigs?
I'll tell you something even more amazing. An infinite, perfectly holy, majestic, awesome God is passionately in love with insignificant, sinful, sometimes openly rebellious, frequently indifferent people. God loves people like you and me.

Out With The Pig in Me In With The New Love of Christ

II.In Christ, We See Jesus As Well As Ourselves From A New Perspective(v12;16)o

2 Corinthians 5:12–16 ESV
12 We are not commending ourselves to you again but giving you cause to boast about us, so that you may be able to answer those who boast about outward appearance and not about what is in the heart. 13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. 16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer.
2 cor. 5:

A) In Christ A “New Perspective” sees ourselves and others by the content of their character that honors the God in us(;,)

Galatians 5:22–23 ESV
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
gal. 5:22-23

by the content of their character that honors the God in us(;,)

B) In Christ A “New Perspective” sees Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savoir.()

Acts 2:36 ESV
36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”
Jesus Christ has all power
Matthew 28:18 ESV
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
matt 28
Jesus Christ has the only name that humans can be saved from their sins
Acts 4:12 ESV
12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
acts 4:12
acts 4:12
When the Lord Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world. The race of “old Adam” died and when He rose from the dead, The “New Adam” came into existence. There is no way to eternal life for the “old Adam”. There is no power in “old Adam”(born by the seed of humans) to have power over sin. Without being born of the “seed of God”(word of God) it’s a case of spiritual suicide.
John 3:3 ESV
3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

The Head???

The smallest package I ever saw was a man wrapped up in him totally in his self. A better way is not to sturggle to be the head but wrap ourselves up in Jesus who is the head.

Out with the Old and In With A New Perspective toward Jesus Christ And Yourself.

III. In Christ there is a “New Creation” That Includes “All things” ()

“Out with the Old And In With The New”
2 Corinthians 5:14–17 ESV

Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Look at yourself with a New View
Look Forward To a New Creation
Look Forward now that your New has come.
