Jeremiah 30-31

 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, 32 not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the Lord. 33 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

The days are here. The long awaited messiah came bringing the blessing of a new covenant. A new agreement between God and man whereby we can have access to God. It’s not an agreement we can simply break and it have no power. Now God puts the reflection of his character, his law, within us. He writes it not upon stone, but upon our hearts. We no longer rely on teaching about God, because we can actually know God personally. God does not simply have a relationship with our leaders and spiritual guides, he knows us all. He has forgiven our sin and all we need to do is enter into this covenant, cut with the blood of his son, Jesus. Have you trusted in him today?
