I love it – “Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant.”
What an amazing statement – what could not be done through the Old Covenant or through the Priests in the line of Aaron has been done in Christ! We are new creations, not bound in law but free in Christ – a covenant so far better than the old that there is no real comparison!
So what – now I do not need to go down the path of working, or second guessing am I saved, am I good enough, will I get to heaven? Through Christ, through faith in Him alone I can live the way that I was always meant to, I can live free, fulfilled!
Father thank you for the gift of Jesus and the simplicity of the Gospel. May I live in faith in Him and so receive and live in the better covenant bought by His death!
