Hymn 8:  A New Earth

·        Each New Year we look to see what we can learn from the past to make the future better

·        God has said He will “make all things new”

·        New things can come from replacement or from transformation

·        The hope of the resurrection is to receive a spiritual body as the angels (spirit and soul) which will replace the body we have now

·        Those alive when Jesus Christ returns can have the hope for their physical bodies to be transformed wholly in spirit and soul and body

·        If we have this hope we need to ask God to remove the evil from within us both spiritually and physically 

·        In God’s New Kingdom all will be happy with the life they receive

Hymn 57 (Tune 54):  United with God
