For moms living a uniquely different sort of life. It's how we roll…

Kainos

A Greek New Testament term for newness. Characterized by a creatively different sort of life.

Peter tells us that a kainos heavens and earth will be formed through a melting down and purification of the old heavens and earth (2 Peter 3). As we are a temple and a witness, may this be how we choose to live.

In the Old Testament we read: Isaiah 65

17“For behold, I create new heavens
  and a new earth,
 and the former things shall not be remembered
   or come into mind.
18But be glad and rejoice forever
   in that which I create;
for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy,
   and her people to be a gladness.
19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem
   and be glad in my people;
 no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping
   and the cry of distress.
20No more shall there be in it
   an infant who lives but a few days,
   or an old man who does not fill out his days,
for the young man shall die a hundred years old,
   and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 They shall build houses and inhabit them;
   they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
22 They shall not build and another inhabit;
   they shall not plant and another eat;
 for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be,
   and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labor in vain
    or bear children for calamity,
for they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the LORD,
   and their descendants with them.
24 Before they call I will answer;
   while they are yet speaking I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall graze together;
   the lion shall eat straw like the ox,
   and dust shall be the serpent’s food.
They shall not hurt or destroy
   in all my holy mountain,”

         says the LORD.
