A New Covenant

A New Covenant
Weekend of September 26 & 27, 2020 –

A covenant is an agreement that brings about a relationship of commitment between God and his people.

The Jewish faith is based on the biblical covenants made with Abraham, Moses, and David.

The New Covenant is between God and the followers of Jesus Christ.

The New Covenant is written in our new heart and it is stored in us, the temple of the Holy Spirit Ezekiel 36:24 For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. 25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

Jeremiah 31:31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the LORD. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

By going to the cross Jesus established a new covenant or promise
Hebrews 8:7 If the first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no need for a second covenant to replace it. 8 But God himself found fault with the old one when he said: “The day will come, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and Judah. 9 This covenant will not be like the one I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand and led them out of the land of Egypt. They did not remain faithful to my covenant, so I turned my back on them, says the Lord. 10 But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel on that day, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their minds so they will understand them, and I will write them on their hearts so they will obey them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 12 And I will forgive their wrongdoings, and I will never again remember their sins.” 13 When God speaks of a new covenant, it means he has made the first one obsolete. It is now out of date and ready to be put aside.

We’re encouraged to REMEMBER the covenant that Jesus established on the cross.

One way we can do that is by taking communion together.
1Corinthians 11:23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

 Jesus announced a New Covenant at the last supper; this New Covenant abolished the charges, which were against us...
Colossians‬ ‭2‬:‭14 He cancelled the record that contained the charges against me. He took it and destroyed it by nailing it to Christ’s cross.

Now, because Jesus went to the cross and was resurrected by the Glory of God, the church is not established on a list of shall not’s, the church is established on a list of He shall and He has.
