Old to New

Old to New

Sermon notes

Jeremiah 29:10-14

The two most important words in Jeremiah 29:11 are not plans and prosper but future and hope.

“In the Old Testament the covenant rests on God’s promise and lies at the heart of the biblical notion of history…It is the core of the Hebrew understanding of their relationship with God.” William Dyress (Themes in OT Theology)

Breaking the yoke of bondage

Healing the incurable wound of sin

Reviving the wasted land

Old covenant

  • Written on stone
  • Changes conduct
  • Based on your work

New convenant

  • Written on hearts (2 Corinthians 3:3 – You are the letter!)
  • Changes character (Romans 3:20 – No one will be justified by the law/good works.)
  • Based on Christ’s work ( 1 Peter 3:18 – Christ suffered to bring us to God.)
