NEW Covenant?





Matthew 16:14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”



Let go of the Old to grab ahold of the new!


“New”!  It is “New”.  Sometimes it is “cheap”.


The Old one is broken!  It is depleted, done, failed!


Romantic about the past.  The glory days.

The Final Blessing

Numbers 6:24-26

24 “‘“The Lord bless you and keep you;

25 the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;

26 the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’






Jeremiah 31:31-34

31 “The days are coming,” declares the Lord,

“when I will make a new covenant

with the people of Israel.

32 It will not be like the covenant

I made with their ancestors

when I took them by the hand

to lead them out of Egypt,

because they broke my covenant,

though I was a husband to them,”

declares the Lord.

33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel

after that time,” declares the Lord.

“I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts.

I will be their God, and they will be my people.

34 “For I will forgive their wickedness

and will remember their sins no more.”­­
