The days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers the day I took them by the hand to lead them forth from the land of Egypt; for they broke my covenant, and I had to show myself their master, says the LORD. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD. I will place my law within them and write it upon their hearts; I will be their God, and they shall be my people. No longer will they have need to teach their friends and relatives how to know the LORD. All, from least to greatest, shall know me, says the LORD, for I will forgive their evildoing and remember their sin no more.
Jesus was the fulfillment of the new covenant that God made with the people of Israel. He came to save us from our sin, to restore the covenant that we broke again with our sins. He died for you, have you lived the Covenant we have with God? Why not?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, forgive me the times I have broken my covenant with you. Help me to always walk with you!! In Jesus’ holy name, Amen
Create a clean heart in me, O God.
