The New Covenant – In Christ’s Blood


The voice of sin may be loud, but the voice of forgiveness is louder. —D. L. Moody

The old covenant shows us our guilt before a righteous God. The new covenant show us His forgiveness and faithfulness to all those who call upon His name.

Thus says the LORD:…I have loved you with an everlasting love;  therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you…

“Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the LORD.

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares 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. And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”Jeremiah 31:2-3, 31-34

And he (Jesus) took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood. Luke 22:19-20

Should we not thank Him for the blood of the New Covenant in Christ Jesus our Lord?
