iTruths For an iPod Generation
Romans 6:3-23

Without that battery there is no life, no power… no music.

People don’t react well to death… even if it’s the death of their iPod.

Jesus came to free us from that fear of death.

Hebrews 2:15
John 11:25
John 14:19
John 14:6
I Corinthians 15:54-57

Jesus came to give us life, and life more abundantly than any other power can give.

Romans 6:3-8

You see: when we were baptized into Christ something changed within us.

Ezekiel 36:26

Don’t try hooking up the battery of sinful past along with the new one God just gave you when you became a Christian.

Romans 6:12-13

That’s why you and I became a Christian to begin with. We wanted something better than what we had.

But even that new heart – that new battery – that new lifestyle is still going to be inferior to the one God can give us.

If all you have beating in your life is a really good mortal heart it could never last long enough in the courts of heaven.

When God gave you a new heart – He gave you a power source that will allow you to live forever.

Psalm 40:3
