It’s Saturday, March 22, 2014, I’m Robert Hatfield and this program delivers daily thoughts for new Christians. This is THE NEW YOU!

The Q & A Saturday edition of The New You seems to be something you enjoy. I hope you do! I could really use your questions for next Saturday. If you have a question or comment – anything you’d like to add in to the show – I’d love to hear it! Email me at or, better yet, give me a call and let’s hear your voice right here! My voicemail line is 903-265-4448.

Here are this week’s questions.

Question #1: “What makes a bad word bad?” [Thursday’s episode]

The sentiments behind our words are just as important as the words themselves. In fact, the sentiments behind our words may be even more important than the words themselves.

Eph. 4:29-32; Col. 4:5-6

Question #2: “I’ve heard people say that the New Testament and the church was God’s ‘Plan B’ when the Old Testament didn’t work. Is this true? How do I answer this claim?” [Wednesday’s episode]

Isaiah 2:2-3; Daniel 2:44; Joel 2:28-32; Zechariah 1:16; Luke 24:46-49; Acts 2

Memory Verse: On Saturdays we like to see how well we’ve done with the week’s memory verse. Here’s what I’m going to do: I’ll say the verse but with blanks. As I say it, you say it with me and see if you can fill in the blanks. We’ll review the answers at the end. Here goes!

Jeremiah 10:__: “O LORD, I know the _____ of man is not in __________;

It is not in ______ who walks to ________ his own _______.”

Jeremiah 10:23: “O LORD, I know the way of man is not in himself;

It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.”

Great job! Let’s add that one to the verses that we’ve memorized together. This is a growing list which currently contains Psalm 119:11, 1 Corinthians 15:58, and Jeremiah 10:23. We’ll begin to add another verse to this list on Monday, the Lord willing.

Over the weekend: Tomorrow is the first day of the week! That’s the day that the first century disciples gathered to worship (Acts 20:7). Modern followers of Christ will do the same. Do you have a place to worship tomorrow? If not, check out our show notes over at for an interactive map of congregations. ( Search for your area and I’m sure you’ll find a nearby congregation with which to worship.
