Rev. Chris Konker has started a weekly blog where he discusses the most recent message from Sunday and also blogs about various issues of faith and belief.

New Beginnings – The God Renewed Life

Purpose:  I want to write about the new life in Christ.  In Christ, each day brings new beginnings.  What will we do with our new lives?  Paul helps us understand when he says in his first letter to the Corinthians that we are each like builders.  From the foundation we have upon the grace of Jesus Christ, “each builder must choose with care how to build on it.”  We already have the gift of this life from the Holy Spirit.  It is my prayer that the contents of this blog will express  what this life has been and also what it will grow into.  I mean this especially for the community I am privileged to serve – Mandarin Presbyterian Church in Jacksonville.

This new life is…

1)new – because the old life has passed.

2) planted – rooted in God’s Word, the Holy Scriptures, as the branches are planted in the vine.

3) renewed daily – regular and frequent reflections.

4) local – intended to speak particularly to the ministry, mission, and people of Mandarin Presbyterian Church in Jacksonville.
