Oh, and kainos is the Greek word used in the New Testament for something entirely new and different: new covenant, new birth, new wine … you get the idea. The air in too many churches is musty … like a museum … or a mausoleum. We could use some kainos, something to remind us how amazing God’s grace is, something to fill our hearts with gratitude for the awful price he paid to set us free, something to stir up a passion for helping him bring his lost children home.
