JESUS IS A BETTER COVENANT
3 parts to a biblical covenant:
- A sacred relationship
- It requires sacrifice
- Sovereignly initiated
The old covenant focused on what the people did outwardly. But this new covenant takes care of the mind and heart inwardly.
Being good may earn you the respect of other men and women, but it will never fool God.
For all my good deeds and righteous actions, I couldn’t save myself from the sin inside myself.
This happens when we stop letting God work on our hearts and decide what is happening out there in the world is more important than what is happening in us.
