April 19: Newness


Scripture Lesson: 2 Corinthians 5:16-17


On this date in 1965, at a cost of $20,000, the outer Astrodome ceiling was painted black because the sun’s glare made fielding fly balls hazardous. This caused the grass to die and spurred the introduction of artificial turf, which became known as Astroturf. Astroturf ushered in a new era of stadium design and field maintenance.


Paul told the Corinthians that in Christ we are new creations: the old has gone and the new has come. There is a newness that comes when we give our lives to Christ and follow Him. Things in our past that seemed so important take on a different place in our priorities. We are not the same when we follow Jesus. Life takes on a new meaning and purpose as we live our lives for Him.

  1. Describe your “newness “ with Christ.

  2. What are some things that are not as important as they were before you started following Jesus?

  3. Have you encountered people who have seen the difference Jesus has made in your life?

The world needs to see the difference, the newness Jesus brings to our lives when we follow Him. Let Him live in us as we live for Him!
