Restore the House: It Is the Time for New Beginnings January 11, 2009 Restore the House It is the Time for New Beginnings Sermon Synopsis: Sermon continues the theme of transformation. Three passages of Scripture provide a metaphor for the uncontrolled aspects of life. In the story of creation, Genesis 1:1-5, the God of Creation is introduced as the God of New Beginnings. God looked down on creation and breathed life into it. You and I often see the dark and murky side of life. God wants to turn the light on so we can see new possibilities with God. The story of Jesus’ baptism, Mark 1:4-11, provides another look at what happens in the water. Jesus’ baptism transformed the baptism of repentance to the baptism of the Spirit. Again, the breathe of God descended on creation. This time God’s light illuminated Jesus as the Son of God. The baptism of John’s disciples by Paul, Acts 19:1-7, provides the backdrop for us to consider our own baptism. The God of creation wants to be the God of transformation for all of us.
