The days are surely 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 that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt—a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, 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 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. No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, “Know the Lord,” for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more. Thus says the Lord, who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the Lord of hosts is his name: If this fixed order were ever to cease from my presence, says the Lord, then also the offspring of Israel would cease to be a nation before me forever. Thus says the Lord: If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth below can be explored, then I will reject all the offspring of Israel because of all they have done, says the Lord. (Jeremiah 31:31-37, NRSV)
We will no longer teach each other, for God will write His laws and commandments on our hearts and minds and we will just say, “Know the Lord!”
God made a new covenant with us through Jesus. The new covenant did not take away the old one but unites God with all people through the blood of the lamb.
Through Jesus, we all can have forgiveness of sin and a place in the kingdom.
The new kingdom is for everyone!
Come and join us in the new covenant, in the kingdom God has prepared for you!
