We have a better covenant with better promises (Hebrews 8:6)! We are living under the New Covenant! So how can we be free from the influence of the Old Covenant in our lives?
Watch this week’s Expression of Grace video with Pieter Swart as he talks about the Difference Between Two Covenants:
The Old Covenant (The Law) was written on stone, but the New Covenant was written on the heart of flesh.
The Cross of Jesus Christ stands between the two covenants. Everything from the Old Covenant that can be applied to our lives, must first pass through The Cross – just like water passes through a filter – everything that is negative out of the Old Covenant, stopped at The Cross, and everything that is positive, comes out on the other side.
Jesus took sin, The Curse, rejection, poverty; He took it all on Himself!
We have a High Priest that is seated at the right hand of the Father, presenting us holy and righteous. He keeps this New Covenant because we cannot. There is no condemnation, no guilt and no sin-conscience pointing to us. We qualify for all of the promises and inheritance we have in Christ Jesus!
