Daily Founrtain 2017 - A Superior Covenant

Wednesday January 18th

Bible Reading:     Heb. 8: 7 - 13

Topic:         A Superior Covenant

The new Covenant in Jesus Christ is here presented  as more beneficial and superior to the old Covenant.

Yesterday, we saw that Jesus' Priesthood is far Superior to Aaron's

When anything is seen as more beneficial and superior, the implication is simply that it can perfectly replace the inferior.

The Law is the shadow of the gracious Covenant in Jesus Christ which is full of Divine and Earthly benefits.

The New Covenant guarantees our supernatural freedom in Jesus Christ (John 8: 32, 36)

It elevates our position in the Heavenly Order of Ranks such that man formerly made a little lower than Angels is now son to God the Father (Psalm 8: 5)

In this New Covenant, man that was dying in sin received mercy, remission of sins and eternal life free of charge.

This Good News is not the preserve of an elite group - as the Jews used to have the Law - but for all humanity.

Through this Ministry of the New Covenant in Christ  is given to all, we all have to make an individual choice to participate in it and receive the benefits from it.

Will you seize the opportunity to benefit? or will you reject this offer of grace from God?

The choice is yours to make

Lord Jesus, may I always be a partaker of the New Covenant and all its benefits, Amen

Memory verse:   Heb. 8: 12
"For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more."
