Same old, Same old

Sunday April 8th, Isaiah 65: 17 "Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. 18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. For the people of Jerusalem who were rebuilding the temple after the Babylon captivity, this was good news. The message brought hope. It soon turned to however to the same old same old. They liked the part about not remembering former things, but soon felt into the same old mistake of believing it was exclusively for them. Before we blame the returning captives however, it is good to remember that is a problem we all have. Pastor Bill White (http://www.bethel-madison.org/meetpastors.htm) (Speaking in Stories, Stories are for telling, Stories for the Journey) once said that every Sunday the Good news is read and then the pastor steps into the pulpit and shoulds all over people. Always try to keep before you that the Lord is doing new things. Without that vision we all fall into the same old same old shoulds, oughts and musts.
