Under New Management 31 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
Laboring with God is a privilege that no unbeliever has. You are His building, built to please Him.Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
Our natural and incredibly foolish desire is to have preeminence over Him. Jesus is the head and will have the preeminence. We are better off if we willingly give it to Him.1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
From nothing to all things is the difference Jesus makes.Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
It would be incredibly foolish to live our lives under old and fruitless management when we can have God’s managementPsalms 48:14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
Adrian Rogers: Jesus is in the Bible, Jesus is in the lives of Christians, Jesus is in history, Jesus is in action, Jesus is reigning in Heaven, but the greatest truth is that Jesus is in me, the hope of glory (and hopefully in you). He lives in me, He has possessed me, I am His purchased possession, and therefore, I am under new management, and when you gave your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ that was the last legitimate, independent decision you ever made. You are now not your own. You belong to the Lord Jesus Christ and you are under new management.
