Our Covenant God: The New Covenant of the King

Passage: Jeremiah 31:31-34

The new covenant of God through Jesus displays the beauty and glory of what it means to have a relationship with God unlike all the old covenants. The old covenants ultimately failed to produce the beauty and glory God intended for us because of inner human sinfulness. But the new covenant succeeds because it is the new that creates an inner revolution in you. In the new covenant God gives us the Holy Spirit who regenerates our heart giving us a new desire and capacity to love God and others, along with a deep inner personal experience of God. This inner revolution results through a new understanding of God’s love demonstrated through Jesus’ death on the cross. On the cross Jesus took the curse we deserved because of our covenant unfaithfulness so that we could receive all the covenant blessings through the Holy Spirit He deserved as a gift of grace.
