Words of Life â€œThe New Covenantâ€
The Easter season is tied into the New Covenant. At the cross where Jesus shed his blood, connects every believer to the New Covenant. We are saved because of the New Covenant. The word covenant means alliance, treaty or agreement. God has made a covenant with all of human kind. He loves us. He has saved us when we repent and he is coming back for us one day. In the Old Testament, the initiating of a covenant was done by a cutting, made by passing between pieces of flesh. Blood was shed when this happened. The New Covenant was established between God and human kind because of the death of his Son, Jesus Christ on the cross for the sins of humanity. Jesus himself said, “This cup is the New Covenant in my blood.”. We can become a part of the New Covenant by asking Jesus to forgive our sins. As a believer, walk and live in the New Covenant and be blessed.
God bless you,
