Today’s Reading – Jeremiah 30-31
The time is coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and Judah. It won’t be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt. They broke that covenant with me even though I was their husband, declares the LORD. No, this is the covenant that I will make with the people of Israel after that time, declares the LORD. I will put my Instructions within them and engrave them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. They will no longer need to teach each other to say, “Know the LORD!” because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD; for I will forgive their wrongdoing and never again remember their sins. Jeremiah 31:31-34 CEB
For the people in Jeremiah’s day, the time was coming.
The promise that God’s new covenant was coming was comforting.
It was a promise they could hold on to.
For us today, the new covenant has come.
Jesus declared the arrival of the new covenant at the Last Supper.
We no longer must wait.
We know God. He has been revealed in Christ.
What are you waiting for?
